Cape Town - Businessman Naushad Deshmukh is still missing after robbers apparently accosted him outside his shop in Athlone two weeks ago, police said on Tuesday.

There were no new developments in the case, Captain FC Van Wyk said.

Deshmukh went missing on October 31, when a group of men allegedly kidnapped him outside his clothing business.

He and a woman were robbed as they were leaving the store. The group of armed men grabbed him and he was driven off in a white Toyota light delivery vehicle.

A woman who answered the phone at the clothing store on Hadji Ebrahim Crescent said his whereabouts were still unclear. She did not want to talk about how the family was coping.

Anyone with information about the crime could call Crime Stop on 08600 10111.
