A senior police official said so far no case of kidnapping had been registered but Ovais was missing and untraceable until now.
“His mobile phone is switched off. We have detained five persons from the parking area for questioning,” he said.
The abduction came just weeks after the sons of two high- profile politicians returned home after spending years in captivity of militant outfits.
Shahbaz Taseer, the son of former slain Punjab governor Salman Taseer, returned home in March after spending five years in captivity.
In May, Ali Haider, the son of former Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani, was rescued in Afghanistan after spending three years in captivity of militants.
