Investigators rescue kidnapped Arizona couple in Mexico

An Arizona couple has been rescued by investigators after being kidnapped and held for ransom in Mexico.

News outlets reported Monday that the Tucson couple was rescued by members of the Sonora Attorney General’s Office investigative branch in Nogales, Mexico, and were returned to the U.S. Saturday.

Authorities say the people, who were not named and are aged 38 and 40, were kidnapped April 24.

Family members reported the kidnappers asked for a $15,000 ransom to secure their release.

The U.S. embassy in Mexico City alerted the Sonora attorney general’s office, which located the couple in a house about six miles (10 kilometers) from the Arizona-Mexico border. Several armed men were guarding them.

Mexican authorities have arrested two men on kidnapping charges who were only identified by their first names.
