Mexican agency assists North Carolina police in kidnapping case
WINSTON SALEM, NC (AP) — A police department in North Carolina says it has requested help from the Mexican Consulate in the effort to find a man who investigators think was kidnapped during a home invasion.
Winston-Salem police Capt. Steven Tollie said at a news conference that 21-year-old Diego Daniel Quintero Fregozo was last seen Dec. 16 being forcefully removed from a home that is suspected to have been involved in illegal drug activity.
Police officials said three others, including a 15-year-old, were tied up and assaulted.
Tollie told news outlets on Monday the department is working with Mexican officials to locate a family member of Fregozo.
