JENNINGS, Mo. (AP) - Police say a 67-year-old man was able to escape kidnappers who held him at gunpoint and forced him to withdraw money from several banks across Missouri.

Law enforcement officials say the victim was kidnapped outside his Kansas City home early Thursday by two men. The suspects drove the victim around in his own van, stopping at banks and a few fast food restaurants.

Authorities say the victim escaped near the Jennings Police Department with a gun belonging to one of the suspects. Lt. Jeff Fuesting with the St. Louis County police says the victim had injuries to his face.

Police are searching for the men who they say should still be considered armed and dangerous.
