Backpacker from Chile goes missing in KZN

South Africa

A team of private investigators on Thursday launched a wide-scale search operation for a Chilean national they believe is missing in rural KwaZulu-Natal.

Yaksic Besoain‚ known nicknamed “Kaka”‚ was last seen between Dundee and Underberg on September 24. His family reported him missing when he missed his return flight to Chile on Wednesday.

Due to concern‚ his family commissioned IRS Investigations’ Chad Thomas to search for the missing backpacker.

Paul Quiroz‚ the msiing backpacker’s uncle said that the 29-year-old and his girlfriend had arrived in South Africa for a holiday in August.

Quiroz said they had tried to trace Besoain’s movements‚ with their only leads placing him in central KZN.

“From what we have heard he was last seen in September at a Christian camp‚ and that is the last we know of him‚” he said.

“We are doing our best to stay calm. His mother and sister are having the roughest time and his father is getting on a plane on the earliest flight to come and help with the search‚” he added.

Thomas said members of their team were already in KZN and would soon begin the search.
