Police have confirmed that a rescue attempt is currently under way at Voëlklip in Herolds Bay, the same dangerous area of cliffs that claimed the lives of a Southern Cape mother and her two children in October. A red Chevrolet Spark crashed into the sea last night, reports George Herald.
Police spokesperson Sergeant Chris Spies said a member of the public had informed the police of the incident.
“Police were at the scene and rescue workers of the Metro through the night and the NSRI was already on the scene at 5 am this morning.
“Nobody or bodies have been removed yet and sea conditions are not favourable to them at this time. Once they are, the police divers will try to go into the water to investigate where there is movement.”
The search for the Herolds Bay girl whose mother and brother died when their car went over a cliff was called off after three weeks of searching last month, with the police scaling back to periodic patrols.
“She is still missing,” said Captain Malcom Pojie of six-year-old Cuzette Scheepers.
The alarm was raised when Heidi Scheepers, Cuzette and two-year-old Hugo went missing on October 22.
On October 24 a VW Caravelle was found at the bottom of a cliff when a search party noticed tyre tracks near a ledge in nearby Voelklip.
The tracks were found on top of the more than 100m drop, and a search and rescue team, as well as a rescue craft and helicopter, were activated to scour the area.
Little Hugo’s body was found in a gorge, and then Heidi’s body was found, also in the sea.
Pojie said the police opened an inquest after concluding that they had drowned.
