A 35-year-old Johannesburg woman is desperately searching for her sister, who went missing on 14 December last year.

Jannet Rowan, who lives in Johannesburg, Gauteng, with her elderly mother, told YOU that she last spoke to her sister, Wendy Alice Rowan, in December. Wendy (37) seemed to be in good-spirits when they last spoke, Jannet says.  

“The last time my mom and I spoke to her was on my late father’s birthday, the 13th of December,” Jannet says. “She sounded absolutely fine, there was nothing unusual about our call.”

Jannet became concerned when she couldn’t reach her sister for several weeks and on 9 January of this year, she opened a missing person’s report in Amanzimtoti, KwaZulu-Natal, where Wendy was living at the time of her disappearance.

Wendy had been planning on coming home to Johannesburg to live with her mother and sister, according to Jannet.

“She’d run into some difficulty and was staying in a commune.”

Wendy has never been married and has no children.

Eddie de Bruin, investigating officer at Amanzimtoti police station, says he’d received multiple leads with claims that Wendy had fled the country or that her body had been found but all leads proved to be false.

Jannet says she’s desperate to know what has happened to her sister.

“It doesn’t make sense for someone to just disappear into thin air like that.”

If anyone has information about Wendy’s whereabouts, please contact investigating officer Eddie de Bruin at 031-903-0520 or Jannet Rowan at 061-088-8889.
