Police have at this time determined the alleged kidnapping for ransom of two teenaged cousins from Sangre Grande, which reportedly occurred around 8:00pm on Wednesday this week to be false.

Two male relatives of the victims who were allegedly kidnapped, a 39-year-old and 48-year-old, are currently assisting the police with their investigations.

The resources of the Anti-Kidnapping Unit were activated around 5am on Thursday following a report of three persons being kidnapped and a subsequent report was made by relatives at around 10am.

The report indicated that Deo Lutchman, his son 16-year-old Darryl Lutchman and his nephew 14-year-old Brandon Sam, all of Oropouche Road, Sangre Grande, were kidnapped by armed men and bundled into a white Tiida vehicle, while hunting at Non Pareil Road, Sangre Grande, around 8pm on Wednesday.

Mr. Lutchman was subsequently released on Thursday and a ransom demand of $350,000 made, for the safe return of the teenagers.

Subsequent to the report of the alleged kidnapping and based on information received, officers of the Penal Police Station, found the teenagers wandering the Scotts Road, Penal, area around 8:30pm, last evening.

They were taken for a medical examination at the Siparia Health Centre and then reunited with their family, around 3am today.

Officers of the Anti-Kidnapping Unit and the Sangre Grande CID are continuing investigations.
