London: Former model Katie Price says she has been targeted by kidnappers after a tracking device was found fitted to the bottom of her car.

Price, 33, who was targeted by a gang 10 months ago, is concerned about her safety after the state-of-the-art device was discovered during a routine vehicle service, Femalefirst reported.

"The garage had my car on a ramp during a routine MOT and spotted this tracker. The car was last serviced on August 16, so I know someone`s been snooping around my property and shoved it on between then and now," she said.

The TV star, who split from second husband Alex Reid in January and ended her four-month romance with Leandro Penna in October, has reported the discovery to police and is hopeful they can track down the person who planted it.

"Luckily, the device had a security number, so the police are looking into that to see where it was bought and, hopefully, find out who`s responsible. After the year I`ve had, it`s just what I need," she added.
