Lone officer in Guadalupe abducted
In the Juarez Valley, the only police officer remaining in a string of small border towns has been kidnapped, the El Paso Times reported, citing Chihuahua state officials.

Gunmen stormed into the Guadalupe home of Erika Gandara early Thursday morning and abducted her, said Carlos Gonzalez, a spokesman for the Chihuahua attorney general told the El Paso Times.

Gandara, 28, was the only police officer in the municipality of Guadalupe, which is about two miles from Tornillo, Texas.
