Marie Ostbo, 21, from Norway, (studying in France and on a tour of South Africa) arrived in Sedgefield with a group of young International student tourists on Wednesday, 18th April.
At around 18h00 some of the group went for a walk on the beach and then returned at around 19h00 and Marie was last seen at around 19h00 on the beach, wearing blue jeans and a white shirt, about 100 meters from the backpackers that they are staying at (which is on the beach) but after friends noticed that she had not come inside with the rest of the group they went to look for her but they were unable to find her.
NSRI Wilderness and Community Police were activated at 19h40.
NSRI Wilderness, Community Police, the SA Police Services and a Police K-9 Search and Rescue Unit have not been able to find Marie despite an extensive search and all possibilities are being explored.
A search is continuing.
We appeal to anyone who may have seen Marie (picture attached), or noticed anything that may assist Police in this incident, to contact the Sedgefield Police.
