Two police officers go missing, feared dead
Police investigators are rushing to a region 8 location, where there are reports that two police officers have gone missing and are feared dead. The policemen were last seen on Sunday when they left to go on patrol on an all terrain vehicle. That vehicle has since been found. There are reports this evening that the two policemen have also been found dead. The Police Force said this afternoon, that they will only make such a determination when they would have reached the scene.
Senior police sources say the information they are receiving is way too sketchy for them to make a definite pronouncement on what may have taken place.
What is interesting though is that the men have been missing since Sunday and it took the police 3 days to get on the case and one of the officers missing is said to have been implicated and charged for aiding and abetting a double murder at Bartica two years ago. He should have been interdicted from duty. It’s unclear how he was still doing police work and stationed at the Police Station at Cato, although that double murder case is still before the courts.
