San Narciso Businessman Kidnapped

Joseph Myvett

Corozal police are investigating what appears to be a kidnapping in San Narciso Village.  Forty-three-year-old Homero Campos remains missing tonight, following an ominous phone call made to his family on Father’s Day.  The businessman had set out from his home en route to his farm when he was reportedly abducted.  It is a sensitive matter, one that has police tightlipped on the details of their latest case.  What little was shared with the media today did not include a confirmation on whether Campos’ kidnappers are demanding money for his safe return, but there is word that a million-dollar ransom is being sought.  According to Assistant Commissioner of Police Joseph Myvett, detectives are looking into the mysterious disappearance of a man who has no criminal record or known ties to the underworld.
