The missing woman from the US to South Africa to attend a wedding has been found.
SHERRY WAITE, WHO IS A US CITIZEN, IS MISSING IN SA
The 64-year-old Sherry Waite, a real estate agent from Carlsbad, California, USA, came to South Africa to attend a wedding.
She disappeared without a trace between the hotel door and the reception desk of a hotel at OR Tambo International Airport.
According to Stan Bezuidenhout from IBF Investigations, Sherry has been found.
SHE WAS FOUND AT THE SAN DIEGO AIRPORT ON THURSDAY
“She somehow got herself onto a plane and flew to San Diego. The US consulate was able to track the passport. The San Diego police collected her at the airport and transported her to the local hospital for evaluation.
“I want to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for everything you have done to help us with this crazy and scary situation. Her luggage is still here in SA, though. So we are not sure of exactly what she was thinking at the time.”
This comes after Sherry was transported from the Houghton Hotel to the Intercontinental Hotel at OR Thambo International Airport on Tuesday.
SHE WAS LAST SEEN ON TUESDAY AS SHE WAS DROPPED OFF AT THE HOTEL
The driver from the Houghton Hotel drove her to the Intercontinental Hotel by OR Tambo on 22 November at 10:00.
“A Porter at Intercontinental hotel recognized her from a picture showed to him – confirming she was dropped there.
“Unfortunately, the Intercontinental says she was a no-show. She did not check in.”
