The kidnappers of Amy-Lee de Jager, who was snatched in front of Laerskool Kollegepark in Vanderbijlpark, are demanding R2m for her release.
A member of the Klerksdorp Community Police Forum confirmed to News24 that Amy-Lee’s parents had been contacted for the demand.
Four men kidnapped the child in front of the Gauteng school at around 07:40 on Monday, loaded her into a white Toyota Fortuner and drove off with her.
Reports circulating on social media that Amy-Lee had been found, were not true, the member said.
The Fortuner, that has no number plates, was last seen on the R82 close to Meyerton.
In a voicenote, Warrant Officer Mills of the SA Police Service Crime Intelligence Unit confirmed the ransom demand.
He urged people to remain calm and not to spread false information.
