Missing baby found after a month
A three-month-old baby‚ who was allegedly snatched from his sleeping mother’s side on the KwaZulu-Natal south coast last month‚ has been found.
The baby’s Hibberdene-based family told police at the time that the mother was asleep with the child by her side before he disappeared.
It is believed that a man and his female friend were visiting the family at the time. Police launched a search for the man‚ who they believed would lead them to the child.
Police spokesman Thulani Zwane said the investigating team on Thursday followed up on a lead regarding the whereabouts of the missing baby.
"They went to a house at Phungula Street in Lamontville‚ where the baby was found.
"The baby was not in a good state and was admitted to hospital‚" said Zwane.
A 21-year-old man was arrested in Umlazi and is expected to appear in court soon on kidnapping charges.
"Police are still searching for the remaining suspect‚" added Zwane.
