REYNOSA, Mexico - A Reynosa teen kidnapped on her way to school is back at home.
Officials say the 15-year-old was walking to school when two men forced her into their car. We're told the men used the girl's cell phone to contact her parents and ask for about $20,000.
The family managed to get nearly $4,000 and contacted the kidnappers, as well as police. They all agreed to meet at a local supermarket.
Authorities say they tried to arrest the kidnappers trying to collect the money.
But the men drove off.
A short while later, the suspects crashed into a patrol car and were taken into custody.
One of the suspects died a short while later from his injuries.
Police say the other suspect eventually told them where the girl was. Officials rescued her.
Good old fasioned police work.
From 1999 through 2005 I went on several mission trips to Reynosa with the high school kids from my church. At 15 now, this girl would be the same age as some of the children that our youth taught in Vacation Bible Schools in Reynosa. I hope she is safe, as I hope and pray for all those precious kids.
I’m seeing a local TV commericial lately for Nuevo Laredo.
All the culture - all the charm.... Come to Nuevo Laredo!
I have to be sure I’m not drinking anything when it comes on. Would not want to spew on my TV screen.
That’s like all the bid invitations that come in here at work for work in Laredo and surrounding areas. The company does not bid those jobs - not worth the risk.
“Dumb and Deader”
If you want on, or off this S. Texas/Mexico ping list, please FReepMail me.
“The family managed to get nearly $4,000 and contacted the kidnappers, as well as police. They ALL AGREED to meet at a local supermarket.”
The kidnappers agreed to meet with the family AND the police?
I think I see the kidnappers’ problem. ;)
I wonder if it was at HEB or Wal-Mart?
