2013-05-18 17:53

A 12-year-old girl has been found after she went missing two weeks ago in Mpumalanga.

Colonel Leonard Hlathi said the girl, who said she had been raped, managed to tip off a community member in Chweni Trust in Kabokweni, that she had been abducted by the man she was travelling with.

“The suspect managed to flee when he realised the police were on to him,” said Hlathi.

The girl was allegedly abducted at Elandshoek, Ngodwana, near Nelspruit on May 4.

The search for the man, thought to be in his early 30s, was continuing, Hlathi said.

The man was also wanted for a series of crimes ranging from kidnapping, rape, house and armed robberies committed in the area.
