Details of Disappearance

According to Law Enforcement, Felix Batista was last seen on 12/10/2008, outside a local restaurant (El Mesón Principal del Norte) in Saltillo, Mexico. That morning, Batista learned his friend and former chief of security for a local industrial firm was kidnapped. Batista began working as the negotiator to secure the victim's release. 

While at the restaurant, Batista received a call from the victim (his friend), who told Batista that he had been released and was sending a car for him. This was later determined to be a ruse. Batista left his cell phone, credit cards, laptop, and all his documents inside the restaurant and went outside to wait. 

Witnesses reported Batista as being met by four men in a vehicle, then forced to enter a Jeep (no further description). However, open source information reports surveillance footage showed Batista waiting for nearly a half an hour before a white van pulls up and a man in uniform approaches. Batista has not been seen or heard from since. There has not been any ransom demand or communication from the group that took him. The victim was released about an hour after Batista was taken.

The FBI is offering a reward of up to $25,000.00 for information provided to the FBI leading to the identification, arrest, and
conviction of the individuals responsible for the kidnapping of Felix Batista.
