Nationals Catcher Wilson Ramos Kidnapped in Guatemala

Lost amongst the insanity at Penn State was the stunning and shocking news that young catcher for the Washington Nationals Wilson Ramos was kidnapped by gunmen outside of his home in Santa Ines, Venezuela. He was reportedly approached by a quartet of gunmen who had entered his house and then took him away in a green SUV. As of this point there has been no contact between the kidnappers and Ramos' family. The "Body of Scientific, Penal and Criminal Investigations" arm of the government has set up operations at the Ramos home. May your prayers be with him and hope that he comes out of this okay.
UPDATE: The vehicle that was used by the kidnappers has been located and found abandoned in a nearby town. More here.
UPDATE 2: Ramos has been rescued by authorities and is safe. More here.
