VANDERBIJLPARK - No arrests have yet been made after a six-year-old girl was abducted outside Laerskool Kollegepark yesterday morning. TimesLIVE reports 19 hours after Amy-Leigh de Jager was grabbed out of her mother's arms and bundled into a Toyota Fortuner, she was given R4 "to buy water" and dropped off in the dark streets of the town in the early hours of this morning. Local resident Shawn Delport, who has been helping the family and police with the search-and-rescue operation of the six-year-old, said she was dropped off at 02:00 on a street close to The Shakespeare Inn hotel in Vanderbijlpark. Delport told TimesLIVE two people dropped her off and told her that there was a car with her mother inside waiting for her at the shop across the road. He said when she got out and saw that it wasn't her mother, she started screaming. Delport said two people who were walking home from a pub close by saw her screaming and came to her rescue. Delport said the two, who did not own a car, walked about 4km with Amy-Leigh to the local police station, where her family was waiting. Amy-Leigh's aunt, Louise Horn, told TimesLIVE the little girl had undergone tests at the hospital and that she was unharmed. News24 reports Amy-Leigh asked for a hamburger and her brother shortly after being reunited with her parents.
