Help find lost flipfile

2018-02-13 06:01

A Strandfontein woman is desperately seeking her lost documents.

Sheila Brache took a taxi and a bus on Wednesday last week and misplaced a file with important documents.

Brache was on her way to the Rocklands Civic Centre with the file to register documents at the office.

The royal blue plastic flip file contains her husband Edgar’s death certificate and ID document, their marriage certificate and other home affairs documentation.

Edgar is recently deceased and the documents are needed to be registered for a variety of paperwork to be filed with authorities­.

Brache says that between 11:00 and 12:00 she took a taxi from Strandfontein to Rocklands Civic Centre.

She then visited the Civic Centre and Shoprite, after which she took a bus coming down Park Avenue back to Strandfontein between 15:00 and 16:00.

“I have phoned the Civic Centre and Shoprite and checked everywhere, but I cannot find the file,” she says.

An emotional Brache is urging anyone who may have found the file to please return it to her.

“I really need the death certificate and documents. I have copies but I need the originals. If anyone has found it, I need them to please return it to me,” she says.

V If you have found the file, please call Brache on 021 393 3754 or 078 543 5352.
