Durban -

A two-month-old baby boy who disappeared from his parents’ home in Mandeni in Zululand on Sunday was found on Tuesday at the home of a domestic worker, police confirmed.

Police spokesman Thulani Zwane said a woman had been arrested and charged with kidnapping.

The child, Siphesihle Majola, was found on the domestic worker’s bed with a bottle.

The baby’s father, Sikhumbuzo Majola, said his partner had met the woman at a clinic the day before, and had employed her after hearing that she was looking for work.

The woman stayed overnight with the couple as they were due to leave on a trip to Mtubatuba.

However, when the baby was left alone with the woman for a short while, she disappeared with the child.

The woman was eventually tracked to her home through her cellphone, and the infant was returned to his frantic parents.
