A Police Dive Unit are continuing in an ongoing search for a 44 year old male who went missing in Hartbeespoort Dam on Thursday night.

Arthur Crewe, NSRI Hartbeespoort Dam station commander, said:

NSRI Hartbeespoort Dam and SRU (Strategic Rescue Unit) are continuing to assist Police in their ongoing search.

At 20h10, Thursday, 14 July, NSRI Hartbeespoort Dam duty crew were activated following reports that a man had gone missing in the water near to Eagle Waters Broedestroom.

NSRI Hartbeespoort Dam, SRU and the SA Police Services initiated a search operation.

Despite an extensive search no sign of the missing man was found.

It appears that while celebrating a family birthday the canoe that the Pretoria man was fishing from, 100 meters from shore, filled with water and capsized after getting caught in fishing nets.

Family reported that he had disappeared under water.

On Friday and on Saturday SA Police Services and Police divers, supported by a Police vessel, NSRI Hartbeespoort Dam, using NSRI rescue craft, and SRU are continuing in an extensive search operation.

Our thoughts are with the family of the missing man in this difficult time.
