MLB Player Wilson Ramos Kidnapped in Home Country


Vehicle presumably used to kidnap the Nationals player has been found in Bejuma, a town an hour away from Valencia, Venezuela.

Wilson Ramos, a catcher for the Washington Nationals, is the victim of a kidnapping in his home country of Venezuela. The 24-year-old Major-League Baseball player was reportedly abducted on Wednesday, November 9 by four armed men from a family home in Santa Ines.

"We are still waiting for any news about Wilson Ramos," Katherine Vilera, a spokeswoman for Ramos' winter league baseball team Aragua Tigres, said via Nationals Journal. "All the authorities are working in the case. We need to be [patient] and pray."

The latest update on the case is the finding of car allegedly used to abduct Ramos. It was found an hour away from Valencia, where the kidnapping took place. Rumor that Ramos is dead has been denied by Venezuelan intelligence.

Contact is expected to be made soon because most Venezuelan abductions are done for ransom. "We don't have any information," Marfa Mata, a family friend, wrote on Twitter. "The kidnappers haven't call yet. Please we must keep calm."

Despite missing one of its players, Nationals will continue playing at Venezuelan winter league. The event's president Jose Grasso told a Venezuelan television station, "Suspending any ballgames will not help Wilson Ramos at all. Turning the lights off is not a solution. We will keep Wilson present in our thoughts and prayers, but suspending activity won't help."
