MEXICO CITY – Authorities are investigating the disappearance of a Colombian-style band in northern Mexico.
At least 15 people belonging to the musical group Kombo Kolombia went missing after giving a private Thursday night performance at a bar in Hidalgo municipality north of Monterrey. All of the band's musicians are Mexicans.
A source with the Nuevo Leon State Investigation Agency said late Friday that relatives of the missing musicians had filed a report with authorities. The source spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to be quoted by the news media.
Family members of the missing say they lost telephone contact with their loved ones early Friday. When they went to the bar to investigate, all they found were the band members' vehicles.
