Cape Town family still searching for missing teacher

A Cape Town family is frantically searching for answers after 28-year-old Mushfiq Daniels went missing this month.

Daniels, who is a teacher by profession, has been missing since Friday 5 July and was last seen in Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam.

His cousin Imaad Isaacs is part of a team driving a search party in the area. He says Daniels has been in based in the city since March 2018.

Mushfiq was in regular contact with his family almost every day unfortunately that contact ceased on the 3rd of July and that was the first sign of concern but, unfortunately, fellow South African citizens spotted him in the city on the 5th of July and he was in a state where he looked distressed and disorientated.

We got the first flight out of South Africa which we could get on the 9th of July.

Unfortunately it is our suspicion that he may have encountered some sort of breakdown, beyond that we just hope and pray he is safe and that he is somewhere where there is shelter and there is food.

Isaacs says while Vietnamese authorities have been unhelpful, the embassy has reached out to the family and will report Daniels as a missing person.
