Ransom for Kidnapped San Narciso Businessman Still Being Demanded

Omero Campos

Businessman Omero Campos was abducted from his farm near San Victor Village on Father’s Day in June.  The San Narciso resident has never been seen or heard from since, despite messages and emails from his purported kidnappers to the media demanding that his ransom be paid in crypto currency.  While the family has been tightlipped about the taking of their loved one, police say that they are now prepared to share an account of the experience with the media.  The latest communication from his alleged abductors came over the weekend.

“Yes, we are aware that a message was sent to the media on Friday, if I am not mistaken.  A copy was sent to the police and it was shown to the family members and it is something that we are still trying to track the authenticity of the email, but up to this point we have not gotten a direct point where the email is coming from.  The family is still concerned about the missing Mr. Omero and they have requested if the media can go and have a talk with them, she can give you more information.”
