Four arrested in connection with missing Czech businessman

Four people have been arrested in connection with the case of a missing Czech businessman believed to have been abducted in southern France in March of this year. Interpol officers on the case say 72-year-old Tomas Vlach who travelled to France to close a real estate deal was most likely abducted by the Czech clients he was dealing with. One of the men arrested reportedly met Vlach at Nice Airport on March 7. His family last heard from him when he confirmed having arrived safely in France but he never made it to his hotel. Another missing Czech entrepreneur disappeared under similar circumstances in 2008 and there has been no trace of him since.
