CAPE TOWN - The police on Sunday found a missing five-year-old Gugulethu girl safe and sound.

Amahle Mboyiya disappeared from her home in Europe informal settlement on Friday night.

The police's Frederick van Wyk said the little girl was found by a woman in Philippi on Saturday night.

"She was taken to hospital for medical examination.

"The mother of the five-year-old was present during the search and when the child was collected at Philippi police station, they were reunited."

Meanwhile, the police are investigating whether a man arrested for the kidnapping of a five-year-old Mitchell's Plain girl may be linked to the disappearance of another girl five months ago.

The 45-year-old man was arrested at his home on Friday, where Zeta Adams was found.

He is expected to appear in court on Monday.
