Heidi Scheepers Death: A forensic investigation is underway
According to the HeraldLive, the Southern Cape Police spokesperson, Captain Malcom Pojie, stated that the body had been handed over to forensic pathologists:

“One of the residents near the Bay area spotted the body and alerted us, it was recovered by NSRI around 12.30 and an autopsy will be done over the next couple of days. We have been searching the area from Wilderness to Mossel Bay since Wednesday but we unfortunately still haven’t been able to trace the daughter.”

The search for their six-year-old daughter is still underway, police have confirmed the two-year-old son, Hugo, to have been found at the bottom of a gorge in Voëlklip on Thursday, and the family car that the Scheepers’ were travelling in, was recovered on Friday, after authorities resumed their rescue efforts with police helicopters and an extensive team of officers and community workers were on the scene.

Heidi Scheepers and her two children, six-year-old daughter, Cozette, and two-year-old son, Hugo, went missing on Tuesday afternoon, 22 October 2019, after visiting Herold’s Bay beach for a walk. Heidi’s husband, 36-year-old Ettienne, had gone with them to the beach but left on foot to attend to some of their family businesses.

The Scheepers’ own the Herold’s Bay Cafe and run the Garden Route Property Management group, which manages several holiday homes in the area. Heidi and the children were driving a charcoal VW Caravelle TDI minibus, with the registration CAW66036 when they disappeared.

The search continued on Wednesday after a civilian saw parts of what appeared to be the missing VW’s door at the bottom of a cliff, and a rescue helicopter and the National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) arrived to assist in the search for this family.

Harsh weather conditions prevailed, and law enforcement had to abort their mission:

“The NSRI launched a boat to have a look while the helicopter hovered above. At this stage, the only thing we can say is that parts of a vehicle [that appear to be] the same colour as the missing Caravelle was found at the bottom of the cliff.”
