William “Veli” Saile who is said to be 49-years old from Johannesburg in a township called Soweto, allegedly travelled from Soweto, Dobsonville to Soshanguve on the 25th of June 2021. On that very same day he went missing. Dobsonville police and Missing in S.A confirmed through a poster created that they were investigating a missing person’s case opened by his family.
Saile left Soshanguve block JJ/P Stout school around 17H45 evening claiming that he is going to Maboloka to see and visit her mother, but according to his mother he never arrived at the destination on the 25th of June. On top of him not reaching his destination to Maboloka, Saile never went back home to Soweto, Dobsonville or Soshanguve where he left home saying he is going to.
Saile was last seen wearing a Royal Blue T-Shirt, Jean, Brown Jacket and blue All-Star sneakers while driving his Golf Nissan Almera with the registration YSL82GP. “We have long been tracing his car and we plead with the public to be on the lookout for his Golf Nissan Almera with the registration YSL82GP,” his wife said.
The family said that this is the first time Veli went missing, and it is strange not to hear from him for such a long time. “We immediately searched for Veli everywhere including at his friends, we also called everyone we assumed that they might give us ideas of his whereabouts because it is unlike him to vanish like that without making any of his family aware of his whereabouts.”
His family plea with the community of Pretoria especially Soshanguve to assist in finding Veli by tracing his car, posting in different social media platform and sharing the post to be viewed by as many people as possible. They can also contact his family on 078 510 3969,083 620 1455 or 073 559 1946. Police and Missing in S.A appealed to the public to assist with any information that could lead to his whereabouts.
