The Hidalgo county sheriff's department is investigating a potential kidnapping.
Reports indicate it happened on Monday morning, south of 8 Mile Line and Bentsen roads, northeast of Mission. Deputies say several men forced a 21 year-old man out of his car around 7:30 in the morning after blocking off the victim in his car and then forced the victim into a car. Investigators spoke the victim's grandfather who says he saw it all happen, but no description of the suspects has been released.
The 21 year-old is believed to still be with the alleged kidnappers and officers are checking the victim's background for any possible leads.
