Anti-terrorism cops and hostage negotiators are scrambling to piece together the last known movements of a missing Cape Town couple thought to have been abducted by acolytes of terror group Isis.

The couple left their last trace at a secluded bush lodge in the rolling hills of Zululand in northern KwaZulu-Natal. What befell them from the time their 4X4 made the arduous climb on a gravel road out of the valley is unknown.

Their car, a key piece of evidence, was found in Waterloo, north of Durban, on Sunday night. Blood evidence was recovered, say sources.
