It is believed two men abducted her and withdrew money from her bank account.
A massive search was launched online and on the ground overnight and into the morning, which included the police's flying squad and K9 unit.
Panayiotou was a teacher at Riebeek College Girls' High School in Uitenhage, near Port Elizabeth.
