Learner was reported missing by friends late Tuesday after he stopped answering phones at his office. 

Police confirm that the Russian IT expert was dragged into a van and the registration number of that vehicle captured.  They have since published that number for the public.

"The programmer was dragged into a Mercedes-Benz Vito car by unknown persons in dark clothes and balaclavas, and taken away in an unknown direction," the Ukrainian media Strana.ua published.
