A four-year-old girl reported "snatched" from a Pretoria supermarket in e-mails doing the rounds was safely back at home with her parents, police said yesterday.
An e-mail plea for help went out after the child disappeared from the Montana Spar at 2pm on Monday while out shopping with her mother.
The e-mail said Charnique "Nicky" Bodenstein had blonde hair and "big brown eyes" and was wearing a pink blouse and pink skirt when a woman grabbed her.
Police said the girl had instead wandered away from her mother in the supermarket when she saw her nursery school teacher. - Sapa
