Durban - A 2-month-old baby who was kidnapped at her Umzinto home a week ago, has been found, KZN police confirmed.
A 21-year-old pupil was arrested at a school in Qwabe Ward in Msinsini by members of the Umzinto SAPS on Monday morning.
According to police the suspect led them to a house in Turton where the baby was found.
The baby, who was being bottle fed, appeared to be in good health and was taken to the hospital for a medical assessment.
The suspect is due to appear in the Umzinto Magistrate's Court on Wednesday on a charge of kidnapping.
On August 31, an Umzinto mother claimed that she had been at the taxi rank when a woman wearing a nightgown approached her and told her that she was destitute and required a place a stay.
The mother said she took pity on the woman, but a few hours later, she kidnapped her baby.
