The victim was found along a road at Smart Village, Manzanilla, by Cpl (Ag) Castillo and PC Jack of the AKU, and WPC John and PC Diaz of the Sangre Grande CID around 6:20am.
The rescue comes following several joint intelligence-led exercises by officers of the Anti-Kidnapping Unit (AKU) and the Sangre Grande Criminal Investigations Department (CID) over the past 48 hours.
The case is currently being investigated by Sgt Harper.
Mary Ali has been found alive.
While information was still coming, Loop News was told that the 67-year-old woman was found early this morning during a police exercise in Manzanilla.
She has since been taken to the Sangre Grande District Hospital to be examined.
Mary Ali, who is one of the owners of Coss Cutters Supermarkets, was kidnapped earlier this week.
According to reports, around 7:50am on Wednesday, Ali was walking through the car park of the supermarket in the company of two security guards, when a grey Mitsubishi Ceda vehicle pulled up.
Two men exited the vehicle with what appeared to be weapons.
They then grabbed the businesswoman and forced her into the vehicle.
The security guards, police were told, were threatened and ran off.
The vehicle then drove away with Ali.
