The parents of Liverpool striker Luis Diaz were kidnapped in Colombia after being stopped by gunmen on motorbikes.
His mother was later rescued but his father remains missing.
Cilenis Marulanda was rescued by police in the city of Barrancas, Colombia’s President Gustavo Petro said.
Meanwhile, the country’s police director, General William Salamanca, said he is using every agent to find Diaz’s father.
The 26-year-old Colombian international’s parents were reportedly kidnapped as they drove to their home.
Gunmen on motorbikes stopped them and took them away in their vehicle, authorities said.
Colombia’s soccer federation said the kidnapping was regrettable – and urged authorities to rescue the father.
