Toddler found in Knysna after being kidnapped in Eastern Cape

A 2-year-old girl was reunited with her family after she was kidnapped earlier in August.

The toddler was playing outside her Kirkwood home on 4 August 2021 when she disappeared.

‘’A woman who was allegedly spotted with the missing girl, was circulating on various social media platforms in the vicinity of Knysna on Monday, 16 August 2021. It was then that authorities became aware of her whereabouts. Members attached to the Tsitsikamma K9 Unit responded to the information and embarked on an intensive search for the pair.  First without any success,’’ says the police’s Christopher Spies.

After receiving a tipoff, police searched a house in Rolihlahla Street, where they found the toddler sleeping in one of the rooms.

A 21-year-old woman was arrested on a charge of kidnapping. She remains in custody and will be transferred to the Eastern Cape where she is expected to make a court appearance once charged.

Meanwhile, the toddler was admitted at a local hospital for medical assessment.
