Joburg EMS spokesperson Xolile Khumalo said they contacted neighbouring municipalities to request vigilance for a missing body. He stated, “After at least five days in water, the body of a drowned person is expected to surface. If it does not surface, it is suspected that the body is immersed in sand or debris. The worst-case scenario could be that the body floated to a nearby river that is outside Johannesburg jurisdiction.”

Regrettably, the search efforts have yielded no results, leading to the involvement of the police for further investigation into the incident.
