Paarl baby still missing
There’ve been no breakthroughs in the last 48 hours after two-month-old Azile Skafu was reported missing.
CAPE TOWN - Missing children's' organisation The Pink Ladies says there have been no breakthroughs in the crucial 48 hours since a two-month-old baby was abducted in Paarl.
A woman, who approached the infant's mother Monica, for a place to sleep the night before, has since disappeared and is believed to be behind the kidnapping.
The Pink Ladies' Dessie Rechner says, "We're very concerned as the days go by and they're not bringing the baby back. There are all sorts of circumstances and speculation about what could have or has happened but the [bottom line] is that there's a baby out there and we need to get that baby back."
Little Azile's mother 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.
She 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.
