Man kidnapped in New York found alive with his eyes taped shut in the Mexican jungle

A man kidnapped in New York with a home in Mexico was found with his eyes taped shut and bound at the ankles and wrists in a remote Mexican jungle, authorities said.

Joseph Constantine Buonincontri, 35, was located in a thatched hut deep in the Limones desert, according to the Attorney General’s Office of Quintana Roo.

He had been kidnapped three days earlier from his home in Limones, a remote town nearly 200 miles southwest of Cancun.

Buonincontri told authorities that he had been kidnapped “by unknown people,” Mexico News Daily reported, citing local media outlets Reforma and Sipse.

He was found on Tuesday after locals alerted a search party of soldiers about a Tulum taxi packed with armed men driving through an “opening” in the jungle next to a road.

The cabin, with Buonincontri tied inside, was reportedly just 325 feet from where the taxi was seen.

The captors had fled by the time Buonincontri was rescued, but reportedly left behind traces of marijuana, a tactical vest and AR-15 rifle magazines.
