VAALWATER — Quinton Quickly, a resident of Vaalwater, has been missing since 17 April 2017 and at the time of going to press, his family was still worried sick about him and his whereabouts.
According to his mother-in-law, Sonja Hurtem, Quickly was last seen when he arrived home for lunch and to fetch his radio. He told the family and his nine year old daughter that he would see them later the afternoon but he hasn’t been seen since.
According to Hurtem, he wore a white T-shirt and denim pants. He is 1.76 m tall, has blonde hair and blue eyes.
She says it is very contradictory to his personality to just disappear and not to let his family know where he is. “He is close to his family and he used to speak regularly with his parents in Cape Town”.
His family has tried to contact him on his cell phone since the day they last saw him without success. His phone has been switched off since the day he went missing.
Hurtem says they contacted all hospitals and the police were notified after they realised he had disappeared, but so far, no progress has been made.
“We urge anybody who may know where he is or know what has become of him, to let us know immediately”, Hurtem pleads.
Sonja Hurtem can be contacted on 083 525 6534 for any possible information that can lead to the tracing of Quickly.
