A search is underway for two American citizens believed to have been kidnapped while in the border city of Matamoros, México.   

Matamoros is the location of  the last verifiable sighting.
Tennessee residents, twenty-four year-old Kelly Jean Shumake and her two year-old daughter went missing, on December 30th. Family members have filed a report with  police, of  the  disappearance,  prompting a multi-agency investigation. 
The family traveled to Brownsville, then to Matamoros, to distribute posters and file missing person’s reports there.
J.J. Treviño,  Brownsville police spokesman, confirmed that a complaint was received and filed regarding  the search for an American woman and her child, and he confirmed a complaint was also filed  in the city of Matamoros, Tamaulipas.
"We cannot do much in these cases, it isn’t  under our jurisdiction, so this limits us in investigation, we reply on what is provided to us." said Trevino.
The U.S. Consulate in Matamoros recently released a warning to American citizens traveling to or through the state of Tamaulipas, given recent reports of express kidnappings happening near commercial areas in broad daylight.
