After days of searching, an employee from Hi-Tech Barberton in Mpumalanga, Erik Vermaak’s, body was found near the R40 Bulembu road outside the town, earlier today.
Sakkie Dednam of Hi-Tech Barberton confirmed Vermaak’s bakkie was found there with his body next to it after what seems to have been a motor vehicle accident. His bakkie left the road at the Eureka lookout point and rolled for about 300m.
Before his body was found, he was last seen at 05:00 that day when he was dropped off at his home in De Villiers Street after completing his night shift.
A missing person’s case had been opened with Barberton SAPS.
According to reports, an hour after he was dropped off, he apparently left home in his white Nissan Hardbody double-cab.
