Johannesburg - ER24 paramedics are asking the public to help them locate an emergency van that was stolen from a paramedic's home in Klerksdorp, North West on Sunday.

"At approximately 07:00 this morning the paramedic noticed the vehicle was missing from his driveway. He immediately alerted the ER24 contact centre and police," ER24 spokesperson Werner Vermaak said.

The single cab Toyota Hilux could not be traced as the tracking unit was removed, allegedly by the thief, he said.

The medical equipment inside the vehicle was also removed from the vehicle and found in an open veld in the area.

"Paramedics identified the equipment on the scene. The vehicle is still being sought."

The car's registration number is YRC495GP and has ER24 branding across the back and front of the vehicle, in red. It also has the call number MR03 on it, Vermaak said.

Members of the public were encouraged to contact police if they had any information about the car.
