Police are now reviewing video footage as they search for 24-year-old Jonathan Ramcharan, who was reportedly kidnapped at a shopping centre in San Fernando this morning.
Ramcharan had reportedly left his Gasparillo home to go to the bank to conduct business. Police are firstly trying to ascertain if he made it to the bank and which bank he went to.
It is reported that he was bundled into a white Navarra at the Carlton Centre carpark shortly after 11 am. Ramcharan arrived at the carpark around 10.15 am in his Toyota Fielder Wagon. His mother told police she was alerted about the kidnapping after she received two text messages from his phone. She received the first text message around 11.15 am and it appeared to be from her son telling her that he had been kidnapped. The second text appeared to be from the kidnappers.
Police did not confirm whether a ransom was demanded.
