Search continues for 65-year-old man

Police are still searching for Layaqat Allie Parker, a 65-year-old businessman who was allegedly kidnapped by five unknown males at his business in Parow on Monday 9 July at about 09:10.

According to Western Cape police spokesperson, Captain FC van Wyk, Parker was driving into the basement of his business premises in Stairway Close in De Greens, Parow, when an unknown double-cab vehicle followed. Van Wyk says at the gate, the security guard was forced at gunpoint into the toilet where they took his cellphone and locked him up.

“They continued into the basement where they forced the businessman into their vehicle and drove off in an unknown direction,” says Van Wyk.

A case of armed robbery and kidnapping has been opened for investigation.

“The circumstances surrounding the disappearance are still unknown at this stage as the investigation continues,” says Van Wyk.

According to Raymond Jacobs, station commander at Parow Police Station, there are no further updates.

Anyone with information regarding the suspects or who witnessed the incident is urged to contact the investigating officer, Detective Constable Chesron de Vries, on 082 493 8472 or Crime Stop on 08600 10111
