Buenos Aires: The father of Argentine football star Carlos Tevez was kidnapped Tuesday in the outskirts of Buenos Aires, local media reports said. Local media reported that Juventus forward was flying home from Italy in response to the situation.
Police sources cited in the reports said the kidnappers have demanded money from the family for the release of Segundo Tevez.
"The family is concerned. We have to wait now to see how events unfold," Gustavo Galasso, a lawyer for the family, told reporters outside their home in Villa Devoto.
