    [...]

    The couple arrested were the last two people seen with Francisco “Frank” Aguilar, a 20-year veteran of the Los Angeles Fire Department, according to Chief Prosecutor Hiram Sanchez in the state of Baja California.

    2 arrested in Mexico in connection with missing Los Angeles firefighter | KTLA
    ''The suspects were also recorded by surveillance cameras at Aguilar’s condo the night he went missing.

    Sanchez said the woman had set a date with Aguilar, who arrived in his SUV to meet her near Rosarito. That’s when the man is believed to have “jumped” Aguilar to try and kidnap him.

    Blood was allegedly found in the vehicle and, according to investigators, it appears Aguilar was shot as he tried to flee the car to evade capture. But Aguilar remains missing.

    Sanchez said authorities will continue looking for Aguilar “as if he is alive.”

    Los Angeles Firefighter Still Missing as 2 Arrested in Tijuana for Abduction[​IMG]
    According to the Attorney General, suspects Fanny N., 32, and Santos N., 27, were arrested Thursday, on a highway to Playas de Rosarito for their alleged involvement in the disappearance of Frank Aguilar, a California firefighter who disappeared without a trace in late August.

    Although authorities have not located Aguilar or the car he was last seen driving, but presume he is alive. According to the investigation, the couple planned to kidnapped Aguilar but he tried to escape and was shot.

    "The victim agreed to meet with a woman we know today is called Fanny 'N'. She identified herself to Aguilar as Monserrat," said Hiram Sanchez, Attorney General of Baja California. "He somehow managed to get rid of his captors, tried to run, and as he ran they shoot and injure him and put him in the van."

    So far it is known that the last location of Aguilar was in zona de Misión del Mar.

    "We're trying to determine if he was inside the vehicle or if they had left him somewhere else," Sanchez added.

    The agents who made the arrest located Aguilar's belongings, including a credit card with his name on it, said Sanchez.

    Mexican Authorities Arrest 2 In Connection With Missing LA Firefighter

    “We were definitely excited that there were some advancements after seven weeks of waiting, which was, like, super hard because you don’t know if we should be mourning him or not,” Amaris Aguilar, the missing firefighter’s daughter said.

    “However, they didn’t say it was a lot,” Amaris said. “They said it was a couple of spots, so, to me, that’s a sign of hope, because it wasn’t an excessive amount according to them.”

    Mexican authorities also said Aguilar’s credit cards have been used in different locations in Tijuana, Rosarito and Ensenada.

    The suspects, 32-year-old Fanny N. and 27-year-old Santos N., were in custody and were scheduled to be arraigned Friday.

    “They haven’t said where my dad is yet, they’re not saying a lot right now,” Bella said. “We will not stop until we find out where you are. We will not rest.

    “The only thing on our mind is figuring out where to find you, what to do next, how to act and we will not stop,” she continued. “We are fighting just like you taught us.”

    When Americans go missing in Mexico, U.S. officials have to tell loved ones 'go to Mexico'

    When Karla Izquierdo’s ex-husband, Francisco Aguilar, disappeared in Rosarito, she unwillingly joined a group no one wants to become a member of: the tens of thousands of families searching across Mexico for their missing loved ones.

    But the case is a relative rarity, in one sense because Aguilar, a 20-year veteran of the Los Angeles Fire Department, is an American citizen.

    Each year, millions of Americans visit Mexico without incident. Still, 324 American citizens have vanished since 2006 and not been found, according to the Mexican federal government’s official tally of the missing. That compares with more than 70,000 missing Mexicans.

    The Aguilar case highlights some of the frustrations Americans face when forced to confront the weakness of the Mexican criminal justice system, where even when criminals confess to violent crimes, they are often acquitted. Law enforcement officials in the United States say it can be frustrating for family members when they realize U.S. police have no jurisdiction in Mexico and have to rely on their Mexican counterparts to investigate cases of missing Americans.

    ''Global Affairs estimates that 374 Canadians died in Mexico in circumstances other than a natural death and roughly 2,600 foreigners have gone missing in the country since 2007.''

    Mexico: Where More Americans Are Murdered Than In All Other Foreign Countries Combined

    The agency's advisories add up to a no-go warning for more than half of Mexico’s 31 states. The country’s remaining 15 states and its capital city, Mexico City, also have a lesser warning: “Exercise increased caution.”

    "While most of these homicides appeared to be targeted, criminal organization assassinations, turf battles between criminal groups have resulted in violent crime in areas frequented by U.S. citizens," the agency says. "Shooting incidents injuring or killing bystanders have occurred."

    The Australian government also expresses concern about the safety of areas frequented by vacationers.

    "Violent crime, including murder, armed robbery, sexual assault and kidnapping, occurs in Mexico, including in popular tourist destinations and beach resorts, and the risks increase after dark," the Australian government says. "Petty crime, such as pickpocketing and bag snatching, is prevalent in tourist destinations, airports, hotels, bus stations and on public transport."

    The Australian government says there have been reports of sexual assault, extortion and robbery "being committed by individuals presenting themselves as police officers, sometimes driving automobiles resembling police vehicles."

    Kidnappings are common, and there have been allegations of complicity by police officers," the Australian government says. "Be cautious and discreet about discussing your financial or business affairs."

    The Canadian government says hotel employees, taxi drivers and security personnel "at popular tourist destinations" have physically or sexually assaulted foreigners. Be wary of beverages and snacks offered by taxi drivers, strangers or new acquaintances, because they "may contain drugs that could put you at risk of sexual assault and robbery," the government advises.''

    Burnt Remains Of Missing Los Angeles Firefighter Discovered In Mexico
    A couple, identified only as Fanny N., 32, and Santos N., 27, are accused of kidnapping and later killing the veteran L.A. firefighter, who has been missing since August, according to the newspaper.

    “Things didn’t turn out like they thought they would,” Hiram Sanchez Zamora, an official with the Fiscalia General del Estado de Baja California, said at a press briefing in Mexico this week.

    Aguilar, who had a property in Mexico and reportedly visited regularly, was allegedly lured into having a sexual encounter with Fanny in Rosarito, officials said.

    "The victim agreed to meet with a woman we know today is called Fanny 'N,'" Zamora said, NBC affiliate KNSD reported. “She identified herself to Aguilar as Monserrat. He somehow managed to get rid of his captors, tried to run, and as he ran they shot and injured him, and put him in the van."
