JOHANNESBURG - The Hawks says it's seeking extradition of a South African man detained in Mozambique for allegedly kidnapping his six-year-old daughter.

The girl has finally been reunited with her mother almost a year after she was taken.

It's understood the child was with her maternal grandmother when her father took her shopping and never returned.

The Hawks' Robert Netshiunda says, "The father is in custody in Mozambique and we still have to follow the right procedures to get him to face charges of kidnapping."
