Mexican authorities arrested two people allegedly connected to the August disappearance of a Los Angeles Fire Department firefighter in Baja California, Mexico, it was reported today.
The man and woman — only identified as Santos “N” and Fanny “N” — were arrested on a highway near Rosarito Beach south of Tijuana, and authorities believe they were the last two people to see Francisco “Frank” Aguilar, according to Border Report. They allegedly had his credit card when they were arrested, and the card had recently been used in Tijuana, Rosarito and Ensenada.
“We completely hope that we find answers from these people but we are disgusted in these people,” said Aguilar’s daughter Bella.
Aguilar, a 20-year veteran of the LAFD, disappeared Aug. 20 from his condominium near Rosarito and has not communicated with family members since.
“He’s never gone more than a day without contacting and making sure that he’s ok to his family,” said his daughter Amaris.
Santos and Fanny were allegedly recorded by the condo’s surveillance cameras on the night Aguilar went missing, according to Border Report.
Chief Prosecutor Hiram Sanchez said that the female suspect arranged a date with Aguilar, and when he arrived in his SUV to meet her near Rosarito, the male suspect “jumped” him to try to kidnap him, according to Border Report.
