Help the Sylvester family from Kensington find their son, Brandon Sylvester, who went missing on Tuesday 3 December.

The family last saw him wearing jeans, a grey hoodie, blue takkies, a pink cap and spectacles. He had just returned from a morning run and was going to the Kensington Good Shepherd Church where he was a warden. He never returned home.

According to his spiritual leader, Reverend Victor Harker, Brandon arrived at church and later, at around 09:00. He apparently wanted to use an ATM. When his parents looked for him after the morning service, he was gone.

Harker says he did not have any luggage, just his cell phone and identity book and he looked okay. He describes Brandon as a friendly, helpful and God-fearing man who would not hurt a fly.

Though the behaviour was strange, church members and his parents remained hopeful he would come back. They became concerned after a few days when they could not get hold of him.

His father, Frank Sylvester, says the family is devastated, he and his wife cannot sleep at night. He says they knew Brandon had personal issues but do not think he would just disappear. They fear something bad might have happened and they need help to find him.

They have opened a missing persons case at Kensington police and say they do not know of relatives or friends he would go to.

“He no longer has friends or anyone he would go to. He is a divorcee and has lost everything due to debt,” says Frank.V If you have any information about Brandon Sylvester, call 021 593 5253 or 061 952 6248.
