JOHANNESBURG - Gauteng police are searching for a woman who allegedly kidnapped two children in White City in Soweto.

It's understood the suspect apparently kidnapped two baby boys - a four-month-old and an 11-month-old - from two different families on Thursday.

Authorities say the woman who is a close friend of the families apparently told them she was taking the children to Roodepoort.

The police's Kay Makhubela says the police have had no leads since the alleged abductions.

"She's not coming back with the kids. We are appealing for anyone who may have information of her whereabouts to contact the police."
