The family of six-year-old Amy-Leigh de Jager is breathing a sigh of relief.

The grade-R pupil is back home after she was kidnapped in front of her Vanderbijlpark school.

The family expressed that Amy-Leigh was very hungry and very glad to be at home with family.

Grandfather Christo De Jager said, “the family is obviously still very shocked, relieved in a great way.

“We were knocked down and fortunately, God prevailed and took us through this and brought Amy-Leigh back.

“We want to thank the whole of South Africa for the great support that we received.”

Amy-Leigh’s family said they will be seeking counselling for the child and their family following their ordeal.
