JOHANNESBURG - The family of an Alexandra child who has been missing for a week say one of his mother's clients kidnapped him.

The child's mother works at a salon in the township where the baby was last seen.

The family says a woman offered to help the mother when her baby twins began crying.

She then vanished with one of the children.

The mother's uncle Bernard Nkuni says his other nephew is not sleeping or eating well since his twin brother's disappearance.
