Missing Muizenberg mother

Angelique Ripepi
The family of a young Muizenberg mother, who didn’t return home after going for a job interview, are appealing to anyone who might know her whereabouts to come forward.

Twenty-five-year-old Angelique Ripepi was last seen early on Saturday January 19 going for a job interview at Table Bay Mall.

At the time, she was wearing a floral top, leggings, Converse All Stars and carrying a pouch that had her phone inside.

Her distraught mother, Dawn Matthee, said a missing persons case had been opened at Muizenberg police station by her boyfriend when he couldn’t get hold of her.

“Angelique has a six-year-old daughter, who she loves unconditionally, waiting for her to come home. She has never done something like this and would never leave everyone hanging like this. We are very worried about her as it’s three days now and we still haven’t heard from her. We are urging anyone with information to go to the police or talk to us. We are just praying for her safety, wherever she is,” Ms Matthee said.
