    Silvia Vargas- Mexico City

    I will translate the entire article. Since this was the first news on her kidnapping, there may be more in-depth information coming out, especially since there is going to be a big march in Mexico City on August 3.
    I may not have it done before late tonight, but I will do it and will post follow-ups.

    Should I move this, or post in on the discussion page?

    Silvia Escalera, center, mother of Silvia Vargas, 18, who was kidnapped in September 2007, speaks during a press conference in Mexico City, Monday, Aug. 25, 2008. Kidnappings are up 9.1 percent in 2008, averaging 65 per month nationwide, according to Mexico's Attorney General's office, which blames a growing web of drug cartels, cops, former cops and informants who point out potentially lucrative victims. The banner at back depicts Silvia Vargas and reads in Spanish: " Please give me back my daughter Silvia. You will be rewarded".

    Mexico Kidnapping Death Stokes Outrage

    MEXICO CITY, Dec. 14 -- Her mother asked that mourners wear white, so the memorial service Saturday for Silvia Vargas Escalera seemed less grim than the circumstances surrounding one of Mexico's most notorious kidnappings.
