Three Texas Women Missing After Crossing Mexico Border 2 Weeks Ago

On the heels of 4 Americans being taken hostage in Mexico, with two losing their lives, there is now another concern for a group of missing Americans who crossed the border.

Two weeks ago, three Texas women traveled to Mexico and have now been reported missing. The three women crossed the US border into Mexico with the intention to sell clothes at a flea market.

It has been reported that Marina Perez Rios, 48, her sister Martiza Trinidad Perez Rios, 47, and their friend Dora Alicia Cervantes Saenz, 53, crossed into Mexico on February 24.

The women had plans to travel to the city of Montemorelos in the Mexican state of Nuevo León to sell clothes at a flea market. The city is approximately a 3-hour drive south from the US border.

The three women have not been heard from since.

The trio is traveling in a 1995 Chevy Silverado.

The FBI has been notified, however it is unclear whether Mexican authorities are investigating the matter. The State Department is aware of the three U.S. citizens missing in Mexico.
