Following the news that Bernie Ecclestone's Mother-in-Law, Aparecida Schunck, was reportedly abducted and held to ransom in her home county of Brazil, Police in Sao Paulo have now confirmed Ms Schunck has been returned to her family unharmed. The 67 year old was kidnaped last week with a reputed demand for Ecclestone to pay a record £28m payment for her safe return. However following a police operation, Ms Schunck has been safely returned and no monies have been transferred. Two suspects have been detained and are in local police custody. It is thought police were able to track down the kidnappers to a remote farmhouse on the outskirts of Sao Paulo after tracking telephone communications between the kidnappers and her family. Ecclestone was present at the Hockenheim circuit after being advised to remain out of Brazil for the duration of the police operation.
