Possible lead in South African cold case

I found this article from a news site out of South Africa that says the police got a lead in the disappearance of five-year-old Florencia Langenhoven. She was abducted while playing in her front yard. A neighbor later confessed to kidnapping her and served ten years in prison, but he never disclosed her whereabouts. (Rather like Jillian Cutshall or Melissa Brannen.) According to the tip, Florencia is alive.

Why the headline says “girl missing for 20 years” is a mystery to me. Florencia was kidnapped in December 1993. That’s not even 18 years ago.

In any case, I hope this is a real tip and Florencia is located. She would be 22 years old today.
