Kidnapping and Rescue Drama Unfolds

Colin Armstrong, a prominent British businessman and former diplomat, was abducted from his villa in Ecuador by a group of armed assailants.

The incident, involving 15 armed men, led to his disappearance on Saturday. His last sighting depicted him being forced into a car by the assailants, sparking a frantic search for his whereabouts.

Breaking news emerged as Cesar Augusto Zapata Correa, Ecuador’s police chief, confirmed the recovery of Colin Armstrong. He was found near Manabi, close to the location of his abduction.

A photo released by the police, albeit slightly blurred according to local law, showed Armstrong flanked by officers, donning a baseball cap and seemingly in good health. Correa stated that nine individuals were arrested in connection with the kidnapping.

While there has been no immediate comment from Armstrong’s family, including his daughter Diana Armstrong Bruns in California, the situation is deemed ‘critical.’

His son Nick has flown from North Yorkshire to Ecuador to aid in the ongoing search and investigation.

Unfolding Story

This remains a developing story, and more details are expected to surface in the coming updates. The situation has captured international attention, especially given the involvement of a British national and the unfolding nature of the investigation.
