More than three weeks after a former U.S. Marine and his relatives went missing in Mexico, authorities in Tamaulipas say they have little hope of finding the men alive.
Armed gunmen kidnapped Armando Torres III along with his father Armando Torres II and his uncle Salvador Torres on May 14 from the family’s ranch near the Los Indios International Bridge, the FBI said Monday. The men have not been heard from since.
A Tamaulipas attorney general’s office official said the agency dispatched investigators to the family’s ranch called “La Barranca.” There, the investigators canvassed the grounds and spoke with individuals close to the Torres family.
The attorney general’s office official said investigators doubt the Torres men will be found alive, though they continue to pursue leads in the case. The official requested anonymity, citing safety concerns.
