Reverie means to daydream but sometimes when we drift off into our daydreams, they can morph into our anxieties, worst fears, horrific nightmares. We may start to get lost in thoughts about the dark things occurring in the world and questioning these happenings in life. Who? How? When? Why? What?Fro… read more


74. Gert Van Rooyen and Joey Haarhoff: Kidnapped, Missing Girls from South Africa

CW: This episode does contain talks about pedophilia but doesn't go into detail about the little girls being hurt in that way. The subject is brought up along with child-trafficking. It's not really graphic, I just wanted to warn anyone who doesn't want to even hear the "p" word or anything like that. It is important to me to bring awareness to the topic and this case. Thank you Nix, from South Africa, for bringing this case to my attention and suggesting it.

Gert and his girlfriend, Joey, were snatching up little girls left and right in and around Pretoria, South Africa. Victims that are known and/or suspected: Joan Horn (13), Rosa Piel (9), Odette Boucher (11), Anne-Marie Wapenaar (12), Joan Booysen (16), Tracy-Lee Scott-Crossley (14), Janet Delport (16), Yolanda Wessels (12) and Fiona Harvey (12). There are possibly many others.
To this day, none of the girls, except possibly ONE (you have to hear this) has ever been found.

This case has my mind reeling. Tell me what you think happened to these girls after you listen to this episode. I definitely agree with the retired South African Police Detective, Don Chandler.

Also, I’d love your thoughts on Fiona Harvey.

This is yet another, in my opinion, case of crappy police work and lazy investigations.…or a possible cover up.

If you have ANY information you can e-mail Don Chandler at or call 061-487-2570.
