Police in the South African city of Durban are searching for a baby girl who was in a vehicle when it was stolen in an apparent car-jacking on Friday.
The mother was with her one-month-old baby and an eight-year old when she was approached by two suspects.
The individuals then hijacked her car and drove off with the baby still inside, officials say.
The car, a white Toyota Yaris, has since been found, but the baby is still missing.
Police spokesman Thulani Zwane said that a search operation, involving officers and a dog unit, would continue until the girl was found.
“Our priority is to find this baby,” Mr Zwane said.
A South African Marshall Security spokesman, Kyle van Reenen, said that the infant’s baby seat had been removed from the car, local media report.
