Search For Missing Former Mayor Unsuccessful: Verulam - KZN

26 May 2022 | From Arrive Alive


A search for missing 74-year-old farmer and former Verulam Mayor, Manna Naidoo was called off due to poor light. 

Members of Reaction Unit South Africa (RUSA), the Verulam SAPS, Umhlali SAPS K9 Unit, Community Organisations and civilian volunteers met at Naidoo’s homestead in Canelands - KZN earlier today (Wednesday) after his family conducted a wellness check and found the door to his home ajar. Upon further investigation they found his safe open and four of his firearms missing. His white Toyota Hilux bakkie with registration NJ 777 could not be located. 

The RUSA R44 Helicopter took off minutes after the call was received and conducted an aerial search of the area. Ground teams with 4x4 vehicles scoured through the farm and the surrounding cane fields in an attempt to locate Naidoo who is believed to have been the victim of a farm invasion. 

The search will continue at first light.
