Cape Town - Police, family and friends are frantically hunting for a 55-year-old woman from Tokai in Cape Town who went missing without a trace three days ago.

Geneva Vietri was last seen on Monday evening at her house in Stonehurst Mountain Estate, her daughter Candice Vietri told News24.

“Police and sniffer dogs have thoroughly searched the estate [and] divers have searched the dam,” Candice said. Despite this, not a trace of her mother has been found.

A police helicopter was also involved in the search.

Vietri had also left all her belongings behind, including her cellphone and bag. She also left her car at home.

Candice did not know what her mother was wearing when she went missing but says she weighs about 56kg, is 1.7m tall, tanned and has blue eyes and short dark hair.

It was Vietri’s birthday on Tuesday.  

Anyone with information can phone Constable Shaun Mostert at 082 522 1216 or on 021 787 9000 at the Muizenberg police station.
