Cape Town - The moment he laid eyes on Zephany Nurse he knew she was the baby kidnapped in 1997, Lt-Col Mike Barkhuizen told Beeld newspaper in a report published on Thursday.

Barkhuizen, who works for the Hawks, had been searching for Zephany, now 17, for the past five years.

The results of the DNA tests were just a formality to him, he said. He knew instantly it was her after meeting her on the afternoon of February 24.

“I was very happy for the parents that their child had been found.”
