Authorities in Bangladesh say one of two men kidnapped in the country's southeast this week has been freed. Security forces located the man in a forest on Thursday .
At least three people in the area were detained for questioning. The released man was the driver for an employee of the Danish International Development Agency or DANIDA . Both men were abducted Monday near Thanchi. Authorities are still searching for the missing development worker.
They have said suspected tribal rebels are behind the abductions. Insurgents in southeastern Bangladesh fought for self-rule for more than two decades. The majority of the rebels signed a peace agreement in 1997, but those opposed to the deal continue to fight in the region.
