President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said Wednesday that National Guard troops were searching for the migrants in an area around the northern city of Matehuala. He confirmed that gangs have been preying on migrants, and that this week’s abduction occurred in the same area where about 100 migrants were kidnapped an later freed in April.
