EDMONTON - Two Edmonton men have been charged with kidnapping after a man alleges he was abducted during a meeting about selling his car.

Calgary, Edmonton and Red Deer police were all involved in the case, which began when the complainant met in Edmonton with two individuals interesting in buying his vehicle.

The vehicle had been advertised for sale via an online website.

The complainant alleges he was then forced into his vehicle and driven to Calgary under threats to his life, before his abductors picked up a third accomplice.

The man says he was forced into the trunk of his vehicle but was able to get out and flee his captors.

Calgary police were able to locate the vehicle and chased it until it ran over a spike belt and the suspects were arrested by members of the Red Deer RCMP.

Police are still looking for a third suspect.

Earlier this year, Tim Bosma of Hamilton, Ont., was killed after taking two men for a test drive in the pickup truck he was selling.

Dellen Millard and Mark Smich have been charged with first-degree murder in Bosma's death, and both plan to plead not guilty.

Bosma's charred remains were discovered on a property owned by Millard.
