Zakkiyah Pandor, the 15-year-old girl who went missing for three days last week, has been found.

The Grade 9 pupil had her father worried when she left without notice on Monday night last week.

Her school bag was found by a neighbour in her yard in Eldorado Park, Johannesburg, the next day.

Sowetan ran a story on Zakkiyah and she was found unharmed at a friend's house in Eldorado Park two days later.

One of the neighbours saw her picture posted at a nearby supermarket and informed her father, Andries Pienaar, of Zakkiyah's whereabouts.

"Next year I will enrol her in another school and she will live with me in Randburg," said Pienaar.

Zakkiyah lives with her grandmother in Eldorado Park.
