The journalist had lived in Venezuela since June 2014, where he has reported for South Florida's WPLG Local 10 News, The Miami Herald, ABC and CBC, among others.
Also Wednesday, Venezuela's foreign minister, Jorge Arreaza announced that Maduro's government had ordered German ambassador Daniel Kriener to leave the country in 48 hours.
"If [Weddle's detention is] true, this is extremely problematic and a very risky move for the Maduro government to make", Eva Golinger, a former adviser to Maduro's late predecessor Hugo Chávez, tweeted. The United States immediately recognized Guaido's temporary presidency. Guaido denounces Maduro as an usurper whose re-election previous year resulted from a sham vote. Their mother, Sherry Weddle, said that the U.S. Embassy contacted the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, but have yet to hear back.
Waiting for Mr Guaido at the country's main airport, Mr Kriener spoke to media and said he hoped the leader of the National Assembly would have a safe return.
However, UN human rights chief Michelle Bachelet said Wednesday that sanctions have worsened Venezuela's crippling economic and political crisis, which has forced 2.7 million people to flee since 2015.
The bid was ultimately unsuccessful, and Maduro retains the support of the armed forces and control of state functions.
'They do this for one reason alone, to intimidate journalists from reporting on @jguaido & on conditions in #Venezuela, ' said Rubio. Vice President Mike Pence said on Wednesday that the White House planned to revoke the visas of officials and family members connected to Maduro's government.
But Maduro has continued to defy the Trump administration.
According to the National Union of Press Workers, Weddle, Ramos, and their team members joined almost three dozen other reporters and journalists Maduro has arrested, detained, manhandled, and deported just in the last two months.
Venezuela considers it unacceptable that a foreign diplomat would take on "a public role more appropriate to that of a political leader", the statement said.
Senior Venezuelan officials would not comment on the case. "Instead, the USA must abide by its obligation under the Organization of American States (OAS) Charter to abstain from using armed force or 'any other form of interference or attempted threat" against another state.
The station's president said in a statement it can't reach Weddle and is concerned. They say the officers emerged two hours later with the Virginia-born Weddle carrying a large suitcase and equipment bag.
