The 3-year old child who was abducted from Buttala by two men last Thursday evening was found in Ampara this evening, police spokesman SP Preshantha Jayakody told Daily Mirror online. He added that the child was in good health and unharmed.
The child was found in Ampara by a special police team deployed to investigate the matter, after a complaint was made by the child’s parents.
The abductors had taken away the child promising that he would be given sweets. It is believed that the reason for the kidnapping was due to a longstanding money dispute which the abductors had with the parents of the child.
