KIDNAPPERS IN GOTHENBURG

What's going on in my hometown, Gothenburg?

Police in Sweden launched a nationwide search yesterday for a prominent business executive and heir to a £170 million fortune who is believed to have been kidnapped. Fabian Bengtsson, 32, managing director of Siba, an electrical retailer, was last seen on Monday as he left home for work at 7.45am. He failed to arrive at work, just a ten-minute drive away, and his car, a grey BMW, was found abandoned in the centre of Gothenburg, Sweden’s second-largest city. (TimesOnline.co.uk, 01/20/05.)
