Where in the World is Wilkes?


The story of a missing tourist in Cape Town has gone viral. Where in the world is Wilkes? Can you spot him?

#missing Wilkes McDermid – a Story to #findWilkes

On 26 December 2012 a British tourist to South Africa seems to have disappeared off the face of the earth. Where is he? [Update: 3 Jan 16:30 Alleged sighting of Wilkes at Rosa’s Bakery in the CBD, Cape Town / Update: 5 Jan Close friends suggest SAPS making progress].

Evidence shows the first few hours are critical in finding any missing person. The family and friends of Wilkes McDermid, a food blogger from the United Kingdom, are growing increasingly anxious about his well-being. As founder/custodian of the @capetown account, I have seen the story unfold in Twitter over the past day or two.

Sabrina started the tag #findWilkes and has been looking relentlessly:

For concerned friends/Followers of @wilkes888 can you please include #FindWilkes hash tag to track progress. We WILL find him.
