Cape Town - A 22-year-old woman could be the seventh victim of an alleged serial killer who is suspected of dumping the bodies of six women in bushes around Century City station.

Sinazo Ntlaka, from Crossroads near Cape Town, went missing on 6 January, reported Die Burger.

Her aunt, Nokubonga Xhongo, said police had told her family they found Ntlaka’s bank cards and work uniform in the home of a suspect linked to the serial murders.

Ntlaka worked at a McDonald’s branch in Durbanville and was a student at Northlink College, according to Die Son.

Her family told the Times they have already visited mortuaries, police stations and hospitals and, after finding no answers, went to the suspect’s Gugulethu home.

The suspect’s family say he hasn’t said a word about Ntlaka.

The suspect appeared in court on Monday charged with robbery and rape allegedly committed in February 2013.

The man was arrested earlier in January after being linked to one of the women by a phone which he had used.
