Gardaí are investigating the alleged abduction of a man in County Louth.

He was driving a silver Mercedes along the Ardee-M1 link road at around 5.30pm yesterday evening when he was struck from behind by a grey Toyota Avensis.

Gardai say three men then forcefully removed the driver of the Mercedes into their vehicle and left in the direction of the Motorway.

The man was released a short time later and did not require any medical attention.

The grey Toyota Avensis left in the direction of the motorway.

Gardaí are appealing for anyone driving on that stretch of road between 5pm and 6pm yesterday evening to contact them at Ardee Garda Station on 041-685-3222, the Garda Confidential Telephone Line on 1800-666-111, or any Garda station.
