According to CNN sport, 25-year-old Mexican footballer Alan Pulido has been kidnapped in the northern border state of Tamaulipas.
The striker was reportedly kidnapped on Sunday near his home in Ciudad Victoria after leaving a party.
He plays for the Greek team Olympiakos and has made several appearances for Mexico’s national team.
Mexico has one of the world’s highest kidnapping rates, with government figures saying some 1,000 people are taken every year.
Others argue that the true figure could be almost ten times as high.
