Weekend Post (South Africa) - - NEWS -

THE Nel­son Man­dela Uni­ver­sity stu­dent who had been miss­ing for more than a week has been found.

Ti­mothy Calvin Mikka, 19, of Uganda, was last seen on May 2 at the An­nie’s Cove res­i­dence in Sum­mer­strand by his room­mate who thought he had left to go and study. He never re­turned.

Yes­ter­day the uni­ver­sity sent out a state­ment say­ing the young mecha­tron­ics stu­dent had been found and was “safe in the com­pany of his fam­ily”.

Mikka’s 18-year-old sis­ter, Karen Tenda, said her par­ents would be land­ing in South Africa to­mor­row.

“I am so happy, and grate­ful to the com­mu­nity for all its help dur­ing this tough time,” she said.

The uni­ver­sity also thanked the com­mu­nity for its as­sis­tance. No fur­ther in­for­ma­tion on where Mikka had been or what he had been do­ing was re­leased.

Po­lice spokesman Cap­tain Jo­han Rheeder could not be reached for com­ment. – Naz­iziphiwo Buso
