Missing manager found

2014-01-24 00:00

IAN Henry (46), manager of the Bluff Meat Supply in Hillcrest who went missing on Monday, was found unharmed yesterday.

Henry’s family have not disclosed what happened but have said they will provide information at a later stage.

Family members could not be contacted for comment yesterday.

Henry was found in his car in the parking area of the Suncoast Casino at 2 am yesterday morning and has since been hospitalised. Previously it was reported that Henry went missing after leaving the Hillcrest shop for a monthly meeting with executive officers of the Bluff Meat Supply company at their outlet in Springfield Park, BMS Select.

Police and local community policing structures subsequently became involved in the search for Henry as well as private investigator Brad Nathanson.

At the time Nathanson thought it unlikely that foul play was involved. He said it was unusual that Henry had left Hillcrest at 11.30 am for a meeting scheduled for 2 pm. A search on Henry’s computer also indicated that the last thing he did was google a bed-and-breakfast in Kloof.

Nathanson was able to triangulate Henry’s cellphone on Tuesday morning “somewhere in the vicinity of the Suncoast Casino”.

The hotel and car park were searched but at that time there was no trace of Henry. Police confirmed that Henry had been found and that they would not be investigating further.
