President of popular breakfast chain Cora kidnapped, found north of Montreal

LAVAL, Que. - The Cora restaurant chain says its president was kidnapped at gunpoint under mysterious circumstances from his home north of Montreal and later released.

Company vice-president Lucie Normandin says Nicholas Tsouflidis was nabbed on Wednesday night at his home in Mirabel.

A witness who discovered the bound businessman in a ditch in Laval told Montreal radio station 98.5 FM that Tsouflidis didn't know where he was and repeatedly stated he'd been kidnapped.

Quebec provincial police Sgt. Claude Denis says the victim was taken to hospital as a preventive measure.

Police did not formally identify the victim and say they are working to verify his version of events.

Authorities have not released any information about any suspect.
