Search on for tourist reported shot on border lake
ZAPATA, Texas (AP) — Mexican authorities on Thursday said they’re searching the border lake where an American tourist was reportedly shot and killed by Mexican pirates.
Ruben Rios, spokesman for Tamaulipas state prosecutors, said the search began Wednesday but was suspended in the evening because of bad weather. He says authorities resumed the search Thursday morning.
Mr. Rios said that, “so far, they have found nothing.”
The Mexican Foreign Ministry said Wednesday they’ve been coordinating a search “from the first moment” Tiffany Hartley reported her husband was shot last week as they rode Jet Skis across Falcon Lake, which straddles the U.S.-Mexico border.
But Mr. Rios‘ comment suggests the search didn’t begin until Texas Gov. Rick Perry called Mexican authorities late Tuesday to demand more action.
Associated Press writer Olga Rodriguez contributed to this report from Mexico City.
