The Herald can confirm that what is believed to be the body of Jayde Panayiotou was found this morning.
According to police a statement will be issued shortly.
Panayiotou disappeared without a trace from outside her Port Elizabeth home just minutes after talking to a close friend at about 6.30am yesterday (22/04/15).
A massive search for her continued throughout the night and this morning.
Panayiotou, a Grade 7 teacher at Riebeek College Girls’ High School in Uitenhage, was last seen at the gates to her residential complex, Stellen Glen, in Deacon Road by one of the residents.
She was just minutes away from being picked up by her close friend and colleague at Riebeek, Cherise Swanepoel, with whom she carpooled.
