Wilson Ramos Kidnapped: Sister Confident Ramos Alive, Will Return Soon

It's been more than 36 hours since Wilson Ramos was kidnapped in Venezuela, and unfortunately, there isn't really anything that we can update you on. The family is still yet to hear from Ramos' captors, so it is unclear what they want to ensure his safe return. According to Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post, the family issued a statement through a spokeswoman imploring people to keep praying for Wilson.

“Another long night waiting,” family friend and spokeswoman Marfa Mata wrote this morning on Twitter. “Not a message or call about Wilson. Keep praying.”

Nationals fans have also organized a small candlelight vigil that will take place at Nationals Park around 6 pm tonight. There is also a new fan-created website www.freewilsonramos.com, which is dedicated to his release. His family is still keeping faith that he is alive, and his sister is confident in his return.
