• Missing since: November 21, 2013
  • Missing from: Roosendaal, Netherlands

On November 21, 2013 at around 8 a.m., the then 27-year-old Jelle Leemans drove from his girlfriend in Rumst to Roosendaal in the Netherlands. He never returned. The investigators suspect that he was the victim of a drug deal that got out of hand. His body has not been recovered.

On the day of his disappearance, 21 November, Jelle drove across the Belgian-Dutch border around half past nine. Research shows that Jelle sometimes made an appointment in Nispen (NL) near the intersection of Steenpaal and the Dreefje (100 meters across the border) and switched to another car and then returned to his car in Nispen with the drugs. The investigators call out to people who have seen something suspicious, an encounter or a transfer to another car. Around 9.56 am that day, the signal from Jelle’s mobile phone was captured in Roosendaal (NL). The investigators suspect that the mobile phone must have passed under the A58 via the Burgemeester Schneiderlaan. Then his cell phone goes off. Jelle’s car, the white Audi A3, drove the morning of his disappearance at 11.30 am on Sint-Jobsesteenweg in Brasschaat, Belgium coming from the Netherlands. Four days after his disappearance, on November 25, 2013, Jelle’s car is found in the Campiniastraat in Merksem. It was parked at house number 76. A witness has seen that the white Audi A3 was left there around noon by a man with a hoodie over his head. He has stepped away in the direction of the water treatment plant. The investigators are also looking for two possible witnesses who were filmed in the immediate vicinity on the Bredabaan on November 21, 2013 and this around the time the car was put away. Description of possible witnesses: The first person is a slightly older man with glasses. He was wearing a dark longer coat and a briefcase. He was on foot and the investigators suspect that he lives nearby or has to work nearby. The second person is a slightly younger man. He was dressed in a dark short coat and jeans. He was also on foot and probably from the area or he went to school in that area.

The car was not locked and there was a half-eaten sandwich in it. Research shows that the bun contains DNA from Jelle as well as from an unknown woman. The researchers are looking for the unknown woman who ate the sandwich in Jelle’s car. All information regarding the packaging of the sandwiches (white paper with pink squares) is also welcome.
