A search and rescue team has intensified its campaign to locate a missing 50-year-old woman in Jagersfontein.
Mantele Mokhali was last seen last Sunday moments before a mine dam burst, which wreaked havoc in the small mining town.
Her husband, 54-year-old Paseka Mokhali and 20-year-old son, Ishmael Mokhali, say they are barely coping.
A mine sludge dam burst on Sunday sending torrents of mud and water into the town. One person has been confirmed dead.
He has been identified as 70-year-old commonage farmer, Aaron Mosoeu.
Free State premier Sisi Ntombela has assured the Mokhali family of the continued support during their difficult time.
