A Cape Town man, Japhta Julius, who was reported missing more than 17 days ago, has still not been found, and his family is reportedly sick with worry.
The 74-year-old disappeared without a trace on Sunday, April 25 in Strandfontein.
According to IOL, his daughter Ceejay Mactavie said: “We have obtained CCTV footage from neighbours. From one neighbour we can see him leaving the house and walking down the road at 3.55pm.
“The second footage shows him walking in Walvis Way at 4pm. That is the last time he is ever seen.”
Provincial police spokesperson Captain FC van Wyk confirmed that the Strandfontein police were still investigating the matter, the report said.
Last month, Julius’s ex-wife Veronica Julius, 67, said he never returned home after he went to the shops.
“He left home to go to the shops and I didn’t think anything of it because he often walks to the shop and is very fit.
“When he did not come home I became worried and reported him missing at the police station. He does not have any illnesses and has never gone missing before.
“We have gone to hospitals and mortuaries and found nothing,” Veronica said.
Julius was wearing a white peak cap, black jacket, and black or blue jeans at the time of his disappearance.
