The whereabouts of Puerto Vallarta City Councilman who was reported missing on January 15, 2015 is still unknown, however Luis Carlos Najera of the Attorney General’s office states he believes they are close to an arrest in the disappearance.
“We are certain that we will soon make an arrest in the disappearance of the councilman,” he said in a statement.
The official also confirmed that the investigation has extended into other areas and also using resources and investigators from Guadalajara.
Several weeks ago area police arrested an individual and killed another after an eleven hour standoff after police attempted to question a suspect in the case with a record of kidnapping, extortion, and suspected high ranks in local drug cartel activity. The arrested individual led police to two buried bodies in Puerto Vallarta that have not yet been identified.
The attorney general office did not indicate why they were confident an arrest would come soon.
