A man was abducted by some people; he is only given water to drink and not for ablution or bath. Can he perform tayammum and pray or not?

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
He should do tayammum and pray and should offer his prayers again with ablution when he finds water.
