Gunmen kidnap sister of Brazilian striker Ricardo Oliveira

Gunmen kidnapped the sister of AC Milan striker Ricardo Oliveira in Brazil on Wednesday, authorities said.
Maria de Lourdes Silva de Oliveira was abducted early Wednesday by two hooded men who broke into her home in Sao Paulo's north side, authorities said. The kidnappers gagged and tied her husband and her 8-year-old son before escaping.
Sao Paulo's Public Safety Department said it would not make any comments until the case was resolved.
Oliveira was expected to travel from Italy to Brazil later Wednesday to accompany the investigation.
Milan club directors and players expressed their solidarity to the Brazilian striker his family.
Oliveira constantly was summoned for Brazil's national team until suffering a serious knee injury and undergoing surgery in November. The striker recovered and played for Spain's Real Betis and Brazil's Sao Paulo before joining Milan earlier this year.
