ORLANDO, Fla. (WESH) — A man who police say was kidnapped in a Kissimmee home invasion was found dead early Wednesday near Orlando International Airport, police said.

The body of Victor Manuel Delgado Rivera, 21, was found along a stretch of road at Andros Place and Avenue C near the airport, officials said.

Kissimmee police said they believe Rivera was kidnapped from an apartment at Essex Park Villas on Michigan Avenue.

Police said the kidnapping was reported at about 1 a.m. Rivera’s body was found around 1:40 a.m.
