First picture of Baby Eden returned to parents, and their media Statement

The domestic worker who was arrested with the other alleged kidnappers of Baby Eden from Brackendowns has been known to the child's family for years.

Eden Laird, the 13-month-old boy disappeared on Wednesday with the homeworker in Alberton on the East Rand and was found on Saturday morning just after midnight.

He is sound and safe and back in the care of his parents, Stuart and Bronwyn. The police arrested five suspects, including the homeworker, in Windmill Park, Boksburg.

Laird family spokesperson Michael Basch told Netwerk24 on Saturday that the homeworker has been working for the Laird family for years. She is a citizen of Zimbabwe.

"Eventually it was all about money. . .

They have seen a possible opportunity to get money out of the situation and fortunately it's not how it played out. "The real losers are her (the homeworker's) family, " said Basch.

They are now sitting with many questions. Basch says as the investigation and subsequent court case unfolds, one might get a clearer picture of what the motivation for the abduction was.

Lastly the family would like to thank the thousands of people both locally and from around the world for their messages of support and concern shown towards the family.

For now let us all embrace the joy of them being reunited with their youngest son, a joy which no doubt is being felt throughout the community. Michael BaschSpokesperson for the Laird Family.
