The frantic 10-hour search for a missing baby girl ended earlier today (Wednesday) when the little girl was found hidden in the bush, wearing just a nappy.

She had been raped.

The search began on Tuesday night this week, when police from Hibberdene were called after the baby was reported missing in Mtwalume.

According to police, the baby’s mother had left her daughter and a seven-year-old boy in one room while she went to another room to fetch food.

“The mother told officers that she had consumed alcohol before she returned to find the boy sleeping and the baby missing,” said police spokesman, Lieutenant-Colonel Zandra Wiid.
