Posted March 13, 2018 09:24:22 The driver’s family is still searching for answers about the kidnapping of their son, who was abducted from a Mexican border town in the town of Acapulco, in the state of Guerrero, in February.
In a new series, Medical News today, the family tells of the events that led up to the kidnapping.
“The kidnapping was a very big event for us,” Luis Salgado, the father of Pedro, told Medical News.
“We thought he was going to be with us for a while.
I knew his father was not going to have a good time, but we believed that if we went to the police, they would be able to help us.”
Salgado, who works in a taxi company in Acapula, has lived in the US for the last four years.
He arrived in Mexico five months ago.
His company, El Migrante, owns the taxi and has also a contract with a nearby hotel.
The kidnapping happened on Feb. 16, at 11:30 p.m. at a hotel near the town’s main highway, which leads to Acapuas main highway.
The hotel was located on the outskirts of Acupuacá, where the police station is located.
Salgado told Medical: “The driver was in a room with the driver of the taxi when the kidnappers went into the hotel room.
They grabbed him by the shirt, and he was thrown into a room.”
The kidnapping of Pedro Salgado was one of the first kidnappings in Mexico, and the family has been looking for answers since.
“My brother was very worried, because his father is in a dangerous situation in Acupua,” Luis said.
“I said to him, ‘Let me see him, I will take care of him,’ so we went and saw him.
The next day, the kidnapper came to the hotel.
They told us they wanted Pedro to get away from Acupuyacá.”
Pedro’s family members are still trying to find answers about what happened to their son.
He was wearing a uniform, which is mandatory to get a taxi permit.
He had a Mexican ID card with a Mexican stamp, and his passport was also valid in Mexico.
The family is worried about what could happen to Pedro.
“We have no idea what the kidnapers could do to him,” Salgado said.
The kidnappers could have used Pedro’s Social Security number to get into his family’s house, or they could have done something to his family.
“They could have tied him up, or thrown him in a vehicle, or a fire could have burned down his house,” Salado said.
The Salgados are trying to keep the family busy by offering rides in their vehicles, and they also have a hotline to help.
The taxi company says that while the driver’s passport was valid in the country, the authorities there have not verified the identity of the driver.
“At this time, we do not know if the driver has a valid driver’s license in Mexico,” the company said.
“This could be because the person who kidnapped Pedro was already in Mexico and was not in Acups state, so the kidnappings could have been in Guerrero, or even the US,” the Taxi Drivers Union of Mexico (CTU-MEX) told Medical.
“For the family to go out and find out the identity and the name of the kidnarer would be impossible, as the driver is still in Mexico.”
The family has also been trying to get in touch with the hotel where Pedro was kidnapped.
The driver told Medical that he was staying at the hotel and was only allowed in the lobby once a week.
