A family based in Khayelitsha is desperate for help in finding their daughter, Jennifer Bota (29), who went missing last month.

Jennifer’s family is baffled by her disappearance and are waiting for the police to release her photo to the public.

Nomvusi (63), Jennifer’s mother, says her daughter lives on her own in Parklands and that her friends contacted the family in November after trying and failing to reach her. Jennifer has not been seen since.

“She lives on her own and works at a call centre. On 23 November we were contacted by her friends saying that her two cellphones were off,” says Nomvusi, speaking to The Daily Voice.

She adds, “We found it strange and went to her flat where the owner told us that she was last seen getting in a Mercedes Benz, but he didn’t see the registration.” 

The family reported the matter at Table View SAPS and they submitted her picture for a missing person’s poster.

“We went to her workplace where they told us that she was not working there anymore. She has no children, only a boyfriend who lives in Parow but he also doesn’t know where she is”, says Nomvusi. “Her friends told us that she is no longer on social media and we are very stressed because we don’t know where she has gone or what has happened to her. She has never gone missing before.”

Anyone with information about Jennifer’s whereabouts is requested to call the family on 072 317 3612.
