A US anti-kidnapping expert was himself kidnapped in northern Mexico Dec. 10, Coahuila state authorities revealed. Felix Batista—a veteran FBI agent now working for ASI Global Kidnap & Ransom Response of Houston who claims to have helped resolve nearly 100 kidnapping cases—was seized by gunmen in a mini-van when he stepped outside a restaurant in Saltillo to answer a phone call. He was apparently working under contract to private businesses and families. There was no word on whether a ransom has been demanded. (Milenio, Notimex, Dec. 15)
