On May 5, a Dundee couple experienced a horrific ordeal. Their 15-year-old son had just been kidnapped.
According to a police source, the teenager was kidnapped from his home at 6.30pm. While circumstances leading to his kidnapping are unclear, the reason came during the early hours of Sunday morning, May 6.
The police source claims the kidnappers demanded a ransom for their son’s return. On Monday, May 7, the teenager was released.
