 A 21-year-old woman from Vlakfontein, south of Johannesburg, who was allegedly kidnapped last week, has not yet been found, police said on Monday.

The woman was reportedly taken hostage on Friday, said Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela.

"She left her home in the morning and said she was going to go look for a job," Makhubela said.

"At around 5.45, the woman's grandmother received a WhatsApp message saying she must bring R30 000 cash within 24 hours or she won't see her granddaughter again."

The message also contained information on where the money should be dropped off.

The grandmother reported the incident to the Lenasia police.

"As the police, we also traced the place from where they were contacting her from," said Makhubela.

The kidnappers were no longer at that location and they did not arrive at the organised drop-off point.

She had not yet been found on Monday morning, said Makhubela.

Police were investigating a case of kidnapping.
