6 Colombian Tourists Missing in Mexico

MEXICO CITY – The emergency management office in the southeastern Mexican state of Chiapas is looking for a group of Colombian tourists who disappeared during an outing to a volcano, officials told EFE on Wednesday.

Someone called the emergency management office about the tourists, but an official missing persons report has not been filed, officials said.

Six Colombian tourists disappeared on April 15 while touring the crater of the Chichonal volcano in the northern part of the state, media reports said, citing a member of the tour group who turned back because he was tired.

“Emergency management office personnel are conducting a search around the volcano and on the trail. Nothing guarantees that the report is true, but we continue searching,” the agency said.

The man who phoned in the report has not been heard from again, officials said.
