Johannesburg - A South African-born couple have pleaded for the safe return of their 12-year-old son who was snatched in Malaysia, according to a report on Saturday.

The Saturday Star newspaper reported that the boy, Nayati Moodliar, was kidnapped in Kuala Lampur on Friday morning while on his way to school.

He was seen being bundled into a car with a false number plate, by two men.

"He is our only son. He is a good boy and we need him back," his father Shamelin Moodliar said in a video broadcast on YouTube.

"We don't want any trouble... It's not too late to let him go...We're not rich people, please give our son back."

Shamelin told a television station they had no idea if he was taken for a ransom.

The parents have dual South African and Dutch citizenship. The boy's grandparents live in Cape Town.

Their South African relatives were shocked to hear the news. "We are in contact with them...It is hard on all of us," the boy's aunt, Caroline Swanepoel told the publication.
