Wilson Ramos Kidnapped: Venezuelan Authorities Find Second Car, According To Report

The search for Wilson Ramos continues after the Washington Nationals' catcher was kidnapped in his native Venezuela on Wednesday night. The latest development is that Venezuelan police have found a second vehicle used in the kidnapping, according to Venezuelan publication Ultimas Noticias. Via Amanda Comak of the Washington Times:

Ultimas Noticias, a Venezuelan publication, reports that 300 law enforcement officers are on the Ramos case, seemingly backing up the police's promise that they are making a significant push to find the Nationals catcher. UN also reports that a second SUV, also believed to have been used, has been found.

The first SUV was found earlier on Thursday, soon after the investigation was launched. The police have learned that Ramos was kidnapped by a larger group, which indicates this is an organized crime ring.

In addition, the Venezuelan police sent out a sharply-worded statement shooting down rumors that Ramos had died. Ramos is still alive and the search continues.
