ROSARITO, Baja Calif. (KGTV) - Mexican officials have rearrested two suspects who may be connected to the disappearance of Los Angeles firefighter Frank Aguilar who went missing in Mexico in August.
Suspects Santos "N" and Fanny "N" were briefly released from a Baja jail overnight Sunday, according to media partner Televisa which confirmed the update with Mexican authorities.
On Monday, ABC10 News interviewed Aguilar’s daughters, 17-year-old Bella and 23-year-old Amaris. “We were extremely devastated last night. It was probably the most hopeless we felt during this entire experience,” said Amaris.
They told ABC10 News that their own sources have made significant discoveries about the suspects. They said the female suspect may have been dating their father. Officials have only said that it may have been a kidnapping setup and that the suspects were found in possession of Aguilar’s bank cards which had been used across Baja.
“We don't know what happened for sure but after he went missing, between the seven weeks, they have been using his credit cards, his phone and there were blood traces [from] my dad in the location of the investigation,” said Bella.
ABC10 News reported last Friday that the two suspects were arrested on Thursday but Aguilar still hasn't been found.
Televisa has now learned from Mexican officials that on Sunday a judge allowed for their release but the state investigation agency got another arrest warrant at dawn and the two were apprehended.
In September, ABC10 News reported that the 48-year-old's family learned that he may have been violently kidnapped from his second home in a guard-gated community in Rosarito.
There were reports that his condo may have been ransacked, his vehicles were missing and Ring video showed a troubling scene.
The two suspects reportedly have a new hearing scheduled for Monday night.
“These people could be let out on bail and we have no other way of finding information until [they remain] incarcerated so this is our most desperate plea in our most desperate time of need,” added Bella.
The San Diego FBI Office told ABC10 News on Monday that their agents are still assisting Mexican authorities with the investigation.
