JOHANNESBURG - Fears are mounting for the safety of a 6-month-old baby who was allegedly kidnapped by a couple in Bezuidenhout Valley on the East Rand.
A Pakistani couple allegedly kidnapped baby Revelation Jones on Tuesday afternoon, and tried to murder his nanny.
It has been two days since the baby went missing, and authorities are no closer to finding him.
Police spokesperson Lungelo Dlamini on Thursday said they were still searching for two kidnappers believed to be on the run with the baby and three children of their own.
“Police are still on a manhunt for the couple.”
The child’s parents said they found the baby’s nanny in a pool of blood on Tuesday afternoon, with her throat slit.
Police say kidnappers have since sent an SMS to the parents demanding a ransom of R100,000.
