The Children's Authority is providing counselling to two girls who were kidnapped and found naked inside a van.

The two girls, aged 9 and 14 were rescued by police when they found naked, drugged and kidnapped in the van that was parked in a cane field.

The suspect, who was in the driver's seat is in police custody.

The Authority’s Emergency Response Team visited the family last evening and provided support to the children and their mother.

The Authority says it is continuing to provide the necessary counselling and other interventions, given the traumatic experience. 

The Authority is appealing to parents to be extremely vigilant in ensuring the safety of their children and to report all incidents or suspicions of child abuse.
