A TEENAGE girl from Gcilima, who had been missing for two weeks, was found in Oshabeni on Friday.

According to police, community members in the area contacted the police about seeing the 13-year-old girl at a residence in Oshabeni after seeing reports in local media about her kidnapping.

Margate SAPS spokesperson Captain Gerald Mfeka said a 42-year-old man was arrested for kidnapping and she was taken to the Thuthuzela Care Centre for an examination.

The man appeared at the Ramsgate Magistrate Court on Monday and the case was remanded to May 23 for a bail application.

An update on the court proceedings was not obtainable at the time of going to print.
