Details around her nearly 24-hour abduction are still sketchy while the four men who kidnapped her in front of Laërskool Kollegepark on Monday morning were still at large.
Police said the grade R pupil was pushed into a white Toyota Fortuner by four men, who sped off with her.
It's not yet clear whether any money was paid to secure the little girl's release after the abductors reportedly demanded a R2 million ransom.
Amy'Leigh De Jager's grandfather Martin Brouwer said that they were overwhelmed that she was finally home.
"She's safe and unharmed. The suspects are still at large, there's still stuff going on."
She will now undergo a medical assessment.
