  • [01] Vanished businessman returns home, investigation continues

  • [01] Vanished businessman returns home, investigation continues

    A 59-year-old Thessaloniki businessman who had been missing since last Friday night and believed to be the victim of abduction returned home in the early hours of Wednesday and was well in health, police said Wednesday.

    According to the Thessaloniki General Police Directorate, which was investigating the disappearance, the man returned home at 2:30 a.m. and was in good health.

    The investigation was continuing, shrouded in secrecy.

    The businessman went missing on Friday night after he left his car dealership in central Thessaloniki, but never arrived home in Oreokastro, causing his family to worry and finally seek the assistance of the police after their own search for the man proved fruitless.

    The police are officially dealing with the case as a disappearance, but the investigation, which is shrouded in secrecy, is also examining the possibility of abduction, following a message purportedly received by the businessman's son on his cell phone demanding that the family amass the sum of 400,000 euros in ransom money for the man's release.

    Police are investigating the car dealer's business environment and dealings.
