She said that information from relatives initially suggested that they left Grahamstown for Hogsback Friday.

"A vehicle matching the description was seen on the N2 on Friday travelling towards Butterworth by traffic officers conducting speed traps.

"There is a possibility that the couple may be along the Transkei coast," Capt Govender said.

"They were driving a Metallic Brown Audi station wagon,with registration number RSM324GP, that had a bicycle on roof."

Any person with information on the couple to contact their local police station  or warrant officer Andrew Bovey of the Grahamstown SAPS on 082 301 9408.
