CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) - Venezuela's justice minister says the
mother of former major league pitcher Victor Zambrano has been rescued.

Tareck El Aissami says federal police rescued an unharmed Elizabeth Mendez Zambrano on Tuesday in the central state of Aragua. He says three people have been detained.

Elizabeth Mendez Zambrano was abducted Sunday at her son's farm.
Police said seven armed men kidnapped her because they didn't find
large amounts of cash or jewelry.

Zambrano's mother was kidnapped nine days after his cousin, Richard Mendez Zambrano, was kidnapped and later killed. It's unclear whether the incidents were related.
