McALLEN, Texas — The sister of a U.S. Marine reservist who disappeared in Mexico says her brother told her he was planning to move to Virginia, where she lives, and may have crossed the border to say farewell to their father.
The FBI announced Monday that it is looking for information about the May 14 disappearance of 25-year-old Armando Torres III of Hargill, Texas. His father and uncle also disappeared from the ranch in La Barranca, Tamaulipas.
Cristina Torres chatted online with her brother the day before he disappeared.
She said a cousin in Mexico called the night of the alleged kidnapping to say she had seen armed men take her family members away in a white pickup.
The cousin also told Torres her father's home was robbed and all vehicles were stolen.
