Possible kidnapping of a woman in Merida

According to Diario de Yucatán, the disappearance of a woman, member of a prominent Yucatecan family, is generating intense police mobilization in the city of Mérida this morning.

Last night, Mrs. Oramas Jimenez, went to one of the casinos located in Colonia Emiliano Zapata Norte, in the north of Mérida, however, she did not return to her home in Fraccionamiento Campestre which caused her family an uncomforting suspicion that something was wrong.

It was reported that her daughter received a phone call informing her that her mother had allegedly been kidnapped and the criminals demanded a large sum of money.

The family have tried unsuccessfully to locate Mrs. Oramas Jimenez, to make sure it is not a case of the so called “virtual kidnapping”, where a person calls a number and then spins a story that someone has been kidnapped, asking for money to be deposited in a bank account.

On the grounds of the missing woman, police have reacted with intense mobilization in the city, mainly of personnel from one anti-kidnapping Unit of the Secretaría de Seguridad Pública and the Prosecutor.

So far the woman does not appear and communication hasn’t been established with the family. The truck in which Oramas Jimenez left her house has not been located either.
