Two weeks after the highly publicized abductions of four adult American citizens who were traveling across the southern border, two American children have gone missing in northern Mexico.
9-year-old Hugo Yarset Monfort Luna and 16-year-old Aranza Yosemiti Monfort Luna, were placed under an Amber Alert on Monday by the district attorney’s office for the state of Nuevo LeÃ³n in northern Mexico. Both children’s nationalities are listed as Americans in the warning. It is unknown if the kids were born in Mexico or the United States.
The U.S. State Department confirmed that it was aware of the event. The child is described as being 3 feet 6 inches tall, having dark, straight brown hair, dark brown eyes, and missing a tooth on the right side of his lower jaw. According to the local prosecutor’s office, the teenage girl was last seen wearing black pants, a pink blouse, a long gray sweater, and blue sneakers. She is described as 5-foot-2 with straight dark brown hair and a brown spot over her right cheek. She was allegedly carrying a brown handbag and wearing a black sweater tied around her waist.
According to the State Department’s travel warning, violent crime in Mexico, including homicide, kidnapping, carjacking, and robberies, is pervasive and frequent. Due to travel restrictions on U.S. government employees in some regions of Mexico, the U.S. government has limited capacity to provide emergency services to American citizens there. Due to crime and kidnapping, Americans are advised to journey to Nuevo LeÃ³n with “increased caution”.
The kids vanished precisely two weeks after four Americans from South Carolina were shot at and taken hostage on March 3 while traveling in a minivan from Brownsville, Texas, to Matamoros in the northern Mexican state of Tamaulipas. Latavia McGee and Eric Williams were later saved by Mexican officials, who also discovered the bodies of Zindell Brown and Shaeed Woodard at a wooden shack outside of Matamoros.
In a different incident, the FBI’s Los Angeles Field Office said on Friday that they were seeking the public’s help in locating Maria del Carmen Lopez, a California mother of seven who is a resident of the United States and was abducted from her.
