Visually impaired man, evicted and abandoned

THE Police are appealing to the public to help trace any relatives of Patrick Rooi (31), who arrived in Namibia from Upington, South Africa, on Saturday.

Rooi, who is visually impaired, was travelling by bus and says he was put on the bus by the woman he had lived with.

The woman, a certain Maria Van Rooi, had apparently evicted him from her house, he said yesterday.

Both his parents are dead, Rooi says.

His father's name was Pikkie Bailey and his mother was Annetjie Rooi.

Anybody with information about his relatives, or anyone who recognises him, is requested to contact the Namibian Police's Woman and Child Protection Unit at (061) 209 5226 or 081 129 3997.
