MONTREAL — Quebec provincial police have released a sketch of one of the men they believe was involved in the recent kidnapping of the president of the popular Cora breakfast chain.

Police have said the kidnapping of Nicholas Tsouflidis on March 8 was motivated by ransom, although no money was actually paid.

They say organized crime was not involved in the kidnapping.

The youngest son of Cora’s founder told police he was taken from his Mirabel home and placed in the trunk of a blue sedan.

He was eventually found by passersby in a ditch the next morning with his hands tied. Tsouflidis was treated for severe shock but wasn’t physically harmed and was able to debrief police.

The suspect in the sketch released today is described as a man in his mid-to-late 20s, with brown hair and eyes.

Authorities have said at least two people showed up at the victim’s home.

Tsouflidis, 44, took over as president of Cora Group in 2008.

The chain is present across Canada.
