A man in an informal settlement is desperately looking for his dead girlfriend’s family so that he can bury her.

Theodore Semston, 46, of Beverly Hills informal settlement in Gansbaai says he needs to find his girlfriend Barbara Jansen’s sister Theresa Jansen urgently.

“Barbara told me Theresa has her ID and I need it so I can bury her,” explains Theodore.

The 46-year-old woman became ill last weekend and died unexpectedly in hospital.

Now Theodore is desperately looking for the family of his girlfriend of the past 19 years.

Barbara has been living in Gansbaai since 1997 but according to Theodore, her family lives in Wallacedene, Kraaifontein.

“She used to work at Pick n Pay with her sister but I don’t know if the sister is married. They also had a brother who passed away,” he adds.

According to Theodore, Barbara never had any children.

“She only had her sister, that’s why I need to contact her so she can be part of the funeral arrangements. They must say where she needs to be buried,” says a desperate Theodore.

He does have a cellphone number for Theresa but can’t get hold of her on it.

“She must have changed her number,” he adds.

Anyone who knows Theresa is asked to call Theodore on 072 042 8726.
