Facts Concerning the Kidnapping of Four Americans in Matamoros, Mexico

On Friday, March 3, four Americans were ambushed and taken hostage at gunpoint in Mexico. The FBI is asking for help to find out what happened.

To find them, the FBI, other federal agencies, and Mexican police are working together on an investigation. In a press release, Oliver Rich, the FBI agent in charge of the San Antonio Division, said that the FBI wants the public’s help to find the people who attacked.

There is a reward of $50,000 for information that leads to the return of the victims and the arrest of the people who took them.

There aren’t many details about what happened yet, but here is what we do know so far.

Surprised when they arrived from Texas

The US Embassy and Consulates in Mexico say that the group drove from Brownsville, Texas into the Gulf Coast state of Tamaulipas in a white minivan with North Carolina licence plates.

Gunmen attacked them in the border city of Matamoros not long after they got into the country.

After shooting at the van, the attackers put the people inside in another car and drove them away, the embassy said. On Monday, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, the president of Mexico, said that the group was in the country to buy medicine.

The president said, “From what we know, they crossed the border to buy medicine in Mexico. There was a fight between two groups, and they were detained.” “It’s being worked on by the whole government.”

A US official who didn’t want to be named said that the four Americans weren’t the targets and that they had gone to Matamoros for medical procedures.
