Kidnapped police officers

Nope, not Colombia nor Mexico.  This is in India.

I hope they are alright and will be found alive.

The Times of India

PATNA: Suspense continued over the fate of the three policemen abducted by Maoists a week ago, with the extremists on Sunday claiming that they have released the hostages but there was no official confirmation.

"We are verifying the reports about Maoists releasing the hostages this morning," director general of police Neelmani and IG (Operation) K S Dwivedi, overseeing the combing operation in the districts of Munger, Jamui, Lakhisarai, Banka and Kaimur said.

"There is no official confirmation of the Maoists releasing the hostages as yet. We have alerted the superintendents of police of these districts, but not a single hostage has been located anywhere," they said.
