Three people have been arrested for the kidnapping of six-year-old Amy'Leigh de Jager.

The child was snatched from her mother's car in front of Laerrerskool Kollegepark in Vanderbijlpark on Monday.

When the suspects realised the net was closing in, they released Amy'Leigh unharmed on Tuesday. 

The suspects, one man and two women aged between 27 and 50, were arrested before midnight on Wednesday at their homes, according to police spokesperson Brigadier Vishnu Naidoo.

A female suspect is known to the parents of Amy'Leigh.

These three suspects are currently in police custody and they are expected to appear in the Vanderbijlpark court by close of business on Thursday.
