A three-month-old baby girl in North West has allegedly been stolen from her minder by a woman who pretended to be a relative.

The family of baby Masego Mokoka, from Motla village near Hammanskraal, is in shock after a woman in her early 20s disappeared with their daughter on Friday.

The woman came to the home of the minder, Gogo Rosie Baloyi, where the baby was left by her mother and claimed to be a relative of the Mokokas.

She left her cellphone, without a SIM card, with Baloyi and took the baby with her, saying she was going to the shops. That was the last time Baloyi saw the woman and the baby.

The Mokokas say the woman lied to Baloyi that she was a relative, and the mother had sent her to spend the day with the baby.

Sophie Mokoka, the child's mother, said she was shocked when Baloyi told her that a woman who claimed to be a relative had disappeared with the baby. Baloyi started taking care of the Mokoka baby this month.

The Mokokas looked everywhere for their baby over the weekend in vain.

"I appeal to that woman not to harm my baby but to bring her back.

"Please bring back my child because I cannot live without her, bring my baby," said a tearful Mokoka.
