Police spokesperson, Nqobile Gwala says the 25-year-old woman from Inanda was taken on Saturday - after she responded to a job advert on social media.

"She found a contact person who agreed to meet her at the Mariannridge Swimming Pool, and she was kidnapped by five unknown suspects. During the search, police found woman's clothing as well as a bag in the bushes," she says.
