Police have made a breakthrough in the case of a missing Pretoria east man, Riaan van Lingen, who went missing on February 12. A Wingate Park Golf estate resident, Van Lingen, disappeared after leaving home for a meeting in Olifantsfontein in Ekurhuleni. His family grew concerned when his tracker and phone were off, and he failed to return home by 17:00 as expected. Last seen in Moreletapark east of Pretoria, his body was later discovered in the Vaal Rand area with gunshot wounds, according to provincial police spokesperson Colonel Dimakatso Nevhuhulwi.
