Man that jumped off jetty still missing

At the time of going to press yesterday evening the search continued for Shaun Haoseb who allegedly jumped off the Swakopmund jetty at around 04:00 on Sunday in what is believed to have been a suicide. It is believed Haoseb drowned.
According to deputy commissioner Erastus Iikuyu, it is alleged Haoseb [age unknown], in the hours before his apparent suicide, had a quarrel with his girlfriend.
He went to the Swakopmund jetty with a friend. Both were under the influence of alcohol. According to this friend, Haoseb allegedly walked to the tip of the jetty and jumped into the ocean.
The police, the Sea Rescue Institute of Namibia (SRIN) and members of a security company were called to the scene. There was no trace of Haoseb. Bad visibility darkness caused by foggy conditions and the darkness made the search more difficult.
∙By yesterday afternoon the possibility was weighed to deploy divers to search for the missing Haoseb around the jetty’s underwater structures. Heavy seas and poor visibility so far made rendered this option impossible.
