A CHINESE woman and her brother who were kidnapped by gangsters from their country in Chonburi on Monday (Mar. 20) are safe but exhausted by the ordeal after walking back home upon being released, Thai Rath newspaper said this afternoon (Mar, 22).

Ms. San Chiqiang, 33, and her brother Mr. Yan Xin, around 40-50 years old but his ID card says 36 years old, were abducted in their Nissan Terra SUV after one of the kidnappers riding a motorcycle cut in front of their vehicle and forced them to let him in soon after they had dropped off her three-year-old son Tai San at a school in Nong Prue subdistrict.

The kidnappers had demanded one million yuan (around 4.7 million baht) with her husband Mr. Ma Mingshun, 33, having transferred 970,000 baht to them.

Police had searched for them up Khao Ya Ra hill in Bang Chang district of Rayong province last night. This spot is 40 km away from where they were kidnapped and the 50-strong police team had to drive up two km and walk another km to reach it.

At 2 a.m. today Pol. Col. Tawee Kudlaeng, head of Nong Prue police station, was informed that the abducted pair had walked back to their house in Phatra Village in the same subdistrict with Ma rushing out to embrace his wife.
