TWO days after the mother of a Sangre Grande businessman was kidnapped, her son is appealing to the kidnappers to release her.
Anil Ali said his mother, Mary, is 68 and is not in the best of health.
“I am appealing to those who are holding my mother. Please return her to us safely and unharmed. Please return my mother to us.”
Ali, a retired principal, was snatched from the grocery’s car park on George Street, not far from her home, on Wednesday. She was bundled into a grey Mitsubishi Lancer which drove off in the direction of Coalmine, according to police. Her son is the owner of Co$$ Cutters chain of supermarkets.
On the supermarket’s Facebook page on Thursday, relatives asked members of the public to call 273-0123 if they had any information.
“All calls will be treated with the strictest of confidence. If you know anything or have seen anything please call or WhatsApp at this number.” Police said they are “following some leads” on Friday but had no update on the kidnapping.
Members of the Special Operations Response Team, the Eastern Division Task Force, the Anti-Kidnapping Unit and the Cyber Crime Unit are involved in the investigation.
