BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) _ Three bodies were found Friday that authorities believed belong to three Americans kidnapped by suspected leftist rebels in Colombia last week.

The bodies were found just across the border in Venezuela.

Two tattoos found on one body confirmed that it belonged to Ingrid Washinawatok, 41, a member of the Menominee nation in Wisconsin, her tribal chief, Apesanahkwat, said by telephone.

Colombian police said a credit card bearing Washinawatok’s name was also found.

The other two Americans kidnapped were Terence Freitas, a 24-year-old environmentalist from Los Angeles, and 39-year-old Lahe’ena’e Gay of Hawaii.
