The youngest sister of Brazilian footballer Hulk has been returned back unharmed after being held by a gang of kidnappers, Brazilian police have revealed.

Angelica Aparecida Vieira , 22, had been missing since Monday afternoon after being left in front of a restaurant in the northeastern city of Campina Grande. A person who was with her at the time told police that he thinks she was kidnapped.

Police have not yet confirmed how many people were involved in the abduction, the Daily Mail reports.

According to the reports, a police officer said than an initial call to Sousa's cell phone was answered by a man impersonating her husband.

"She is missing, nobody saw anybody taking her, but we are checking the reports that she may have been kidnapped," the officer said.

Vieira is one of six sisters of soccer star Hulk, 26, who became Brazil's second most expensive footballer in September after a 32 million pound move from Porto to Zenit St Petersburg. (ANI)
