The family of a Canadian man who went missing in Mexico two weeks ago fear they are unable to trust the local police who are leading the investigation.
Diego Hernandez, a 22-year-old martial arts instructor from British Columbia, and his American friend Craig Silva, disappeared from the Mexican resort city of Puerto Vallarta on May 8.
The two were in the country to organize a mixed martial arts sporting event. Hernandez and Silva had withdrawn money from Silva's bank account to pay for some of the event's expenses, but soon after they obtained the money, they disappeared.
Family members are convinced that the two were kidnapped.
“Unfortunately these kinds of crimes aren’t uncommon in Mexico,” Hernandez’s aunt Amanda Morales told CTV’s Canada AM on Wednesday.
