Windhoek teacher missing after 'morning jog'

03 March 2014 | Local News

A Windhoek teacher has gone missing after reportedly going for a run last week Tuesday. Ngero Lydiana Tsuos, who is employed at Van Rhyn Primary School in Windhoek, reportedly went jogging on Tuesday morning and never returned home according to her elder sister Erica Hengari. According to Hengari, Tsuos was on sick leave since February 25 and was due back at work next week Monday. Hengari told Namibian Sun that her sister left home at around 07:00, which according to her was strange since she was receiving therapy treatment for a back injury suffered during a car accident a few years back. “But strangely that morning she said she is going jogging and she never returned till today,” Hengari said. Tsuos apparently left a handwritten note in her handbag. The note was discovered by Hengari’s older sister and read: “pay these people first. Sorry I can’t face it. It’s too much for me.” Tsuos lived in Windhoek North with their older sister and usually walks to school. Hengari told Namibian Sun that Tsuos went to go see a doctor on the day before her disappearance. She had complained of back pains and was booked off to see a psychologist, according to Hengari. She would occasionally complain of back pains. “She could not travel even to attend funerals,” said the sister adding that Tsuos was admitted in hospital during December because of her back pain. “She was born-again Christian. Her close friends were at church but they only saw her at church on February 23. I called the farm to ask if she was there. I thought she might be out of the country but her passport is at home.” Tsuos speaks Otjihereo. She is slender build and fair in complexion and has short black hair. Anyone with information regarding her whereabouts is requested to contact Kapena Tjonga on 081 303 2588 or Erica Hengari on 081259 4165. The nearest police station can also be contacted regarding Tsuos whereabouts. WINDHOEK SELMA IKELA
