South Africa: Durban Woman Found Alive After Hijacking, Kidnapping Drama

"She was found in the Newlands area by the [police]. She has not sustained any physical injuries and has been taken by police for further investigation and processing. The hijacking investigation is ongoing."

Police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Thulani Zwane also confirmed she was found. He earlier said the woman, thought to be in her 50s, was leaving her business when she was attacked.

"It is unclear why she was taken," he said, appealing to anyone who witnessed the incident to contact Crime Stop or 10111 urgently with information.

Van Reenen said four males armed with handguns had accosted the woman.
