Missing Marine search continues

U.S. Marine Reservist Armando Torres the third has been missing since May when he went into Mexico.
His family, the U.S. Marine Corp and authorities have not given up the fight to find him.
The battle to find Torres will unfold on capitol hill Wednesday.
Congressman Ruben Hinojosa (D-TX) is expected to invite fellow congressman and women who have served in the U.S. Marine Corp to give one minute speeches on the floor.
The primary message is "Bring our brother home".
According to family, the marine and Iraq war veteran was *kidnapped by several men while on a ranch in Mexico. The suspected kidnappers are reported cartel members. They also kidnapped Armando Torres Senior and Salvador Torres, who are also missing.
In June, Congressman Hinojosa sent a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry requesting for diplomatic help to aid in the search for Torres.
Now under the new President (Nieto), I see the same thing. Hinojosa said. A good business and working relationship between the two Presidents and many of the members of Congress. That makes it easier for us to call other members of Congress in Mexico or other Senators in Mexico or folks like John Kerry, Secretary of State, to be able to reach his counterpart to go for information and assistance.
Hinojosa hopes testimonies from his fellow congressional leaders will help increase awareness about the 25-year-old missing marine and get answers for the family.
It will be aired live on C-Span Wednesday.
Torres has two young boys waiting for his return.
As expected his wife is hoping for the best, but according to reports FBI is preparing her for the worst.
Action 4 News will continue to follow the story as new details develop.
