Sauka said the missing officer is aged 57, brown in complexion and of medium height, and that on the day he left home, Gama wore a blue pair of a short trousers with side pockets, grey t-shirt with stripes and a black pair of shoes.
The police publicist believe that Gama may have committed suicide as upon leaving his house Kaipa left a suicide note at his home.
Sauka has however not disclosed the contents of the suicide note saying that such is a personal and family matter that can not be shared in the media.
