Good day,

This message is for any person out in Mozambique that can maybe help me and my family locate my brother. He went to Mozambique and was suppose to be back home (SA) on Sunday already. We are desperately trying to find him and praying for his safe return. I can provide information to anyone that is willing to assist us locating him we just want to make sure he is fine and that he is safe. We've contacted the embassy and border post we know that he went through the Lebomba border (or somethng like that) but he has not returned back since Friday 16h00 when he went through that side. He took someone that is from Mozambique through with him unfortunately we do not know the name of this gentleman or have any alternative contact details.

We would appreciate any assistance and will be grateful for any help…
We are a mom and dad that wants the safe return of their son and brother and sister that wants their brother home. Any assistance will help!!!

Our friend Shaun Van Niekerk (ex-Gaborone) is missing.

His last known whereabouts are that he entered the border into Mozambique on the 12 December 2010. He called a friend on the 13th December, mentioning that he was going to Nampula and would probably pass through Maputo on the way.

Today is the 29th and we still have no real information – Did anyone see him, hear from him…any info that may assist?
