Cape Town - Anchen Muller, the Cape Town teen who had been missing since Friday, has been found.

Her mother, Hanlie Ferreira confirmed to Netwerk24 that Muller, 13, had been found, but referred any other questions to the police.

"She was found on Tuesday night and is unharmed," Ferreira said on Wednesday morning.

Ferreira on Tuesday expressed concern that she might have been lured away from her home by an older man.

According to Ferreira, Muller's cellphone had been off since Saturday morning, after the teen had last been seen at their home in Chelsea Estate in Vredekloof, Brackenfell, just after 19:30 on Friday.  

She had told her mother that a friend's parents would come and pick her up to take them to a prayer meeting at Butterfly World outside Paarl.

Muller's cellphone had been traced to Bishop Lavis on Monday.
