Baby Snatched From Her Sleeping Mother's Arms 17 Years Ago Reunited With Her Family After She Attended Same School As Her Biological Sister

Monday, March 09, 2015

A baby who was stolen from her sleeping mother’s arms 17 years ago has been reunited with her parents after ending up at the same school as her biological sister and friends noticed similarities.

Zephany Nurse was snatched from a Cape Town hospital in 1987 when she was just three days old.


She was reconciled with her biological family after pupils at a high school Cape Town noticed a striking similarity between girls Zephany and Cassidy, born three years apart.

Seeing the resemblance, Cassidy, aged 14, invited the older lookalike to meet her parents, and they immediately recognised their long lost first-born and contacted police.

Her real parents Celeste and Morne Nurse had been living only a short distance apart all these years and had never given up hope of finding her, celebrating her birthday every year with their three other children.
