Cape Town - A Johannesburg child that was kidnapped two weeks ago has still not been found, police said on Tuesday.

Asanda Twala, 2, has been missing for the past two weeks since a family friend took the child to shops near the her home in Jeppestown, Johannesburg, Warrant Officer Richard Munyai said.

He told News24 that police had received some calls and were following some leads that "sounded positive".

He said the family had also received an SMS telling them Asanda was fine, just hungry.

The little girl was apparently kidnapped by a woman named Talita Nkhanzi, who is also known as Thuli. She is allegedly the ex-girlfriend of the 2-year-old’s father.

In the last two weeks, the family has received SMSes warning them that they were being watched and not to speak to police.

A demand for R15 000 in cash was also made.

Nkhanzi apparently lives in Orange Farm.

Anyone with information can contact Detective Constable Mlamleli Batakati on 011 403 3413 or 071 836 5268.
