AFTER a month-long investigation, the missing three-month-old baby from Hibberdene has been located, along with the alleged kidnappers.

Police found the 21-year-old suspect in Umlazi, last Thursday, where he was arrested. The suspect has since appeared in the Umzumbe Magistrate Court on charges of kidnapping.

A second suspect, a 16-year-old woman, was also arrested and appeared in court on Monday after which she was released into the custody of her parents. The case has been postponed to July 16.

The baby, who was allegedly snatched from his sleeping mother’s side last month, was not in good health and was admitted to hospital after being found. — Supplied.
