The police are trying to locate the two French tourists who survived when their hired car was swept away by a river at Remhoogte Pass in Nauchas (about 190km from Windhoek) last week.

Remhoogte Pass is between Solitaire and Nauchas on the D1261 gravel road.

The unnamed tourists, both male, were driving a hired Toyota Hilux double cab bakkie that was left battered and written off when it was swept away by the raging river.

Deputy Commissioner Kauna Shikwambi told Eagle FM on Sunday that they had seen the pictures that are circulating on social media but there was no police report made at Nauchas Police Station.

Shikwambi also said she understood that the tourists were rescued and taken back to Windhoek and that one of them could have sustained an injury on the leg.

According to Shikwambi, the Nauchas police station commander is trying to locate the tourists so that they can give an incident report.

Officers from Nauchas, the deputy commissioner said, arrived at the scene of the incident after the tourists had been rescued and the wrecked vehicle towed back to Windhoek.

Sheriff Sean Naude of the Public Against Crime also told Eagle FM that the tourists lost everything in the incident.
