Police investigate Paarl baby disappearance
He was allegedly taken by a woman who was visiting his parents’ home on Thursday night.
PAARL, Western Cape - The parents of a two-month old baby boy believed to be kidnapped in Mbekweni have had to relive the day he disappeared as they describe.
A number of people have gathered at the home of little Azile Skafu earlier today.
He was allegedly taken by a woman visiting his parents' home on Thursday night.
The baby boy's blanket is still lying crumpled on his parents' bed.
The infant's mother is speaking to the media about her child's alleged abduction.
Monica Skafu claims the woman only known to her as Nosisi, was in need of a place to stay for the night and so she let her stay over.
Skafu says she only realised her child was gone when her husband woke her up demanding to know why the baby wasn't in the bed.
"Monica, where is the baby?' he said. 'Monica, Monica, wake up, there is no baby in the bed.' And the lady is not there."
Cape Town police say no arrests have been made.
The police's Frederick Van Wyk says, "A kidnapping case was opened for investigation. Mbekweni police are looking for a woman believed to be in her mid-30s with long dreadlocks. She was wearing a blue and black skirt, white top and black sandles."
