Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Wilson Palacios flew home to Honduras on Saturday following the discovery of a body believed to be that of his kidnapped younger brother.

Honduran authorities had said Friday that they found remains believed to be those of Edwin Palacios, who was kidknapped in October 2007.

Edwin was 16 when he was abducted from his family home in La Ceiba, Honduras, and had not been released despite the payment of the demanded $500,000 ransom.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp said Palacios traveled back to London from Liverpool, where his teammates were staying ahead of a Premier League match at Everton, to get a flight home.

"The lad had heard from his family at about 1 in the morning what had happened, and his brothers I believe have identified the body," Redknapp said after the match.

"But he sat around the hotel lobby with his case packed until 7 a.m. because he didn't want to wake me."

"Things like that bring everything into focus. You couldn't wish for a more calm and likable lad. Football is not really that important after this."
