A village resident told reporters that a neighbour contacted the police after she overheard the woman threaten to reveal her sister's whereabouts during a row with her husband.

Police say that the girl first visited the locally-popular shaman, known as Jago, fifteen years ago with her family, and she caught his attention, before he chose to kidnap her months later. At night he raped her at home the day hiding in the cave.

The woman, now aged 28 and identified by the initial "H", was rescued by police in Indonesia's Central Sulawesi province on Sunday, Reuters reports, after her sister alerted neighbors nearby that she was being held nearby.

Police say that in 2003, the 13-year-old girl was brought to him for treatment by her own family and stayed behind with him.

The victim's father spent years looking for his daughter.

The girl told police she had missed her cycle and that Jago had given her a potion to abort the fetus.

"Every day, for many years, the shaman had sex with her under the pretence he was possessed by a male spirit", local police chief Iqbal Alqudusy told AFP on Wednesday. The shaman faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted of coercing a minor into intercourse and may face other charges, as well. But she warned that H may not have been the only victim.

"She is very disoriented, she's scared of people and keeps wanting to go back to the cave", Alqudusy said, adding she would undergo therapy.

Well, let's hope that the victim can recover from her ordeal and assimilate into society, while the shaman is punished appropriately if he is found guilty.

He said she was given a herbal concoction and miscarried a few days later. She was then declared missing.

Indonesia is a mainly Muslim country but superstitious practices are still widespread.

People often turn to shamans, who are seen as a kind of medical practitioner who has influence in the spirit world, to treat illnesses or to consult them on everyday life.

The authorities have introduced a law to ban black magic, with violators facing up to three months in jail or a fine of 450,000 rupiah (S$43).
