US Expert In Kidnapping Abducted

December 16, 2008

US (ChattahBox) – A US based security expert who has been considered one of the countries leading authorities on kidnappings has been abducted in the Mexico border city of Saltillo.

Felix Batista, a former Army Intelligence officer and now an ASI Global consultant, was standing outside of a restaurant Wednesday evening when he was abducted, becoming one of the many who have been taken from Mexico in recent years as kidnapping continues to be one of the greatest criminal problems in the troubled country.

While he wasn’t in Saltillo on official business, he has been giving lectures to the Mexican police on how to negotiate and prevent kidnappings the week before.

Officials refuse to comment on whether or not a ransom demand has been received, or who may have been responsible.
