A SOUTH AFRICAN couple hiking the Fish River Canyon have been reported missing.
Trevor Burger (63) and his wife Samantha(50) from Franschhoek in the Western Cape went on a five-day hike in the canyon but the last time their daughter Tana Lancaster heard from them was Thursday night.
Lancaster, also from South Africa, has made urgent calls for assistance to find her parents.
She said they are very fit and active people, and have hiked the canyon before.
“They are supposed to check in every night and we haven’t heard from them since Thursday night when they arrived to start descending in Friday,” Lancaster said.
According to her, three distress signals have been sent by her parents.
The search for the missing couple started on Sunday and continues today.
