Police in Gelderland are investigating reports of a possible kidnapping in Nunspeet, a small town about 30 kilometres north west of Apeldoorn.

Locals reported the kidnapping to the police after they witnesses a man being dragged from his car by three men dressed in black and wearing balaclavas. Images on YouTube show the men calmly putting the man into a BMW in a leafy suburban street before driving off.

A Mercedes van, which was also spotted at the scene, was found later in a carpool park on the edge of the A28 motorway, news agency ANP said.
