Three people have been arrested for the kidnapping of Amy’Leigh de Jager, who was snatched from her mother’s car at the Laerskool Kollegepark in Vanderbijlpark on Monday. According to police spokesperson Brigadier Vishnu Naidoo, one man and two women aged between 27 and 50 were arrested just before midnight on Wednesday.

Four men snatched Amy’Leigh from her mother’s car at the school and they drove off in a white Toyota Fortuner, News24 reported. Police had launched a manhunt while her distraught parents waited at the Vanderbijlpark police station for any news.
