Cape Town - The first public images of Zephany Nurse as a toddler surfaced this week when the teen took to Facebook to post an encouraging message for her imprisoned kidnapper.
“I love and miss you Mommy. You one of my greatest blessings God has given me,” she posted on Wednesday.
Underneath the words she posted the pictures, including one of herself in the arms of her jailed kidnapper.
In another picture, she was sitting on a bed, dressed in pink, with a frilly bonnet on her head. People who saw the posts sent her messages of support.
Zephany was a newborn baby in 1997 when her picture was splashed across the front pages of newspapers in Cape Town as the infant who had been kidnapped from Groote Schuur Hospital’s maternity unit. It was the only photograph that her biological parents, Morne and Celeste Nurse, had before she disappeared.
