A 25-year-old man who escaped from the Kirkwood Magistrate's Court has still not been found.
Toriso Yenge appeared in the Magistrate's Court on Monday, on a charge of car theft when he escaped.
He is also wanted for armed robbery and attempted murder, which happened in January in Uitenhage.
Lieutenant-Colonel Priscilla Naidu said Yenge was being escorted back to the holding cells at 11:00, when he broke loose from a police officer and ran out through the gates.
Toriso Yenge has been described by police as being very well built and he was wearing a black jacket and blue denim pants.
Warrant Officer Johan Mostert said "We are busy following up with some leads we have some information but we have not found him yet".
Police are asking the help from the public, if anyone has any information contact Warrant Officer Johan Mostert on 072 215 6717.
