Limpopo police say 31-year-old Refiloe Malope went missing after she was shoved into a car by two men at Kgaphamadi village outside Groblersdal.

Police spokesperson Motlafela Mojapelo says one of the suspects is a 40-year-old cop from Benoni.

"The police sergeant was arrested while at work on Tuesday and his 39-year-old accomplice was apprehended at his hideout on Wednesday in Apel policing precinct. The team is currently following up on the information that the suspects might have murdered the woman and dumped her body into a discontinued ventilation mine shaft in Benoni.

"The Search and Rescue Unit in Benoni and the Department of Mineral Resources have been requested to assist in these efforts. The operation will commence as soon as the necessary equipment to access the shaft is made available."

The two suspects are expected to appear in the Nebo Magistrate's Court on Thursday.
