Colombian-style band missing in northern Mexico

MONTERREY, Mexico (AP) - Authorities in northern Mexico say they still have no leads after two days searching for 20 people with a Colombian-style band who went missing after a private performance at a bar.

The 20 people include 15 members of Kombo Kolombia and the band's crew.

A source with the Nuevo Leon State Investigation Agency said Sunday that people living near the bar in Hidalgo municipality north of Monterrey reported hearing gunshots about 4 a.m. Friday, following by the sound of vehicles speeding away. The source spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to be quoted by the news media.

The officials added that gunfire is common in the area, and said investigators found spent bullets nearby.

Relatives filed an official report about their missing loved ones on Friday.
