Venezuela hunts for Washington Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos and his kidnappers
CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) ' Venezuelan authorities say they're confident they can quickly solve the kidnapping of Washington Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos.
Deputy Justice Minister Edwin Rojas says investigators are making progress in gathering evidence and have physical descriptions of his abductors based on the accounts of relatives.
Rojas tells state television that President Hugo Chavez's government "is working 24 hours a day to solve this case."
Armed men seized Ramos Wednesday outside his home in the Venezuelan city of Valencia.
The authorities said Thursday that they had found a stolen SUV used by the kidnappers abandoned in a nearby town.
