NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

ACAPULCO, Mexico--Men armed with rifles kidnapped the father of Mexican soccer star Jorge Campos on yesterday at a sports field named for his son.

Two relatives confirmed the kidnapping on condition of anonymity, saying they feared for the life of Alvaro Campos.

"There were six or eight people with their faces uncovered...but nobody recognized them," said one relative. "They took out their guns and took him aboard a pickup truck to an unknown place."

The kidnapping also was reported by the Mexico City radio station, Formato 21, which said the truck had been discovered a few miles away.

Alvaro Campos was seized at the Jorge Campos football field in Plan de los Amates, a former farming village that has been taken over by Playa Diamante tourist development on the southern end of Acapulco.
