Three buses carrying more than 40 migrants from Mexico's San Luis Potosi state to the US have been missing for more than a month, a top official has said.
The number of people in the two other buses that left Sierra Gorda area for the US also is not known, Fernando Rocha, a legislator in Queretaro state, said Thursday.
The buses had left March 17 for Texas and Florida, where the emigrants had pre-arranged jobs waiting for them. Most of the people on board the bus were from San Luis Potosi and Queretaro, and there were several minors among them, he said.
There were, however, no women on the bus, he said.
The migrants come from poverty-stricken families and had temporary job contracts in the US.
