Updated: Pastor Kidnapping Investigation

GUYMON, OKLAHOMA - A Guymon congregation is praying for the safe return of their pastor this evening after reports he's been kidnapped in Mexico.

At this point there is an international effort going on trying to sort out all of the facts and get Pastor Refugio Villa back here. According to the FBI special agent in charge of the investigation, villa was in Juarez getting dental work done when his family reported the kidnapping yesterday.

In addition to heading up the First Hispanic Baptist Church, Villa is a very active member of the Guymon community. He works with several charity organizations and volunteers at the fire department as a chaplain.

The FBI will not comment on if a ransom has been demanded or if there are any strong leads.
