South Africa – KwaZulu-Natal police are searching for a two-month-old baby girl who is believed to have been kidnapped by a woman on Tuesday evening.
Thembeka Mbhele, Police Spokesperson, said that the baby’s mother alleges that her daughter went missing after she took pity on a woman who approached her at Umzinto taxi rank.
Mbhele said: “The woman called her aside and explained that she was the victim of abuse and was destitute with no place to stay.
“The baby’s mother decided to help the stranger and took her to her home in the NPA informal settlement in Umzinto. At approximately 20:00, the woman complained of a headache and asked her host to get some painkillers from her neighbours.
“The baby’s clinic card, milk formula and feeding bottle were also missing. A search for the missing woman and the baby proved fruitless and the matter was reported to the police.
“The suspect is in her early twenties and was dressed in a pink night gown, blue denim jacket and a pair of black pumps. Beneath the gown she had on a green and black skirt.”
