The community of Modimolle, with the help of the local police, continues with a desperate search to find the missing church elder, Reverend Oubaas Jonas Mokau.

The clergyman went missing on Tuesday, 26 December.

Members of the community at the Phagameng Township have since dedicated their time in helping the police and the family, to look for the 75-year-old pensioner.

The One Body Church minister was last seen on the Day of Goodwill last month. 

It is alleged the old man was last seen by his family after he left his home to visit his sister and did not reach his destination. 

“The victim is tall, slim and dark in complexion. He is also a well-known reverend from One Body Church at Modimolle,” Limpopo police spokesperson, Lieutenant Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe, said. 

When he was last seen, Reverend Mokau was wearing black trousers with a long-sleeved maroon shirt, and blue slippers.
