Crowned one of Mexico’s “Pueblos Magicos” only last year, the once-sleepy town of Lagos de Moreno in northeastern Jalisco has been hit by a spate of kidnappings in recent weeks.
Four suspects have been arrested in connection with the disappearance of at least seven youths in the last month, but the authorities have yet to locate any of the victims. Concerned residents and distraught family members have put up posters of the missing in public places, while their images are also being circulated via online social media – all seemingly to little avail.
