Kidnapped in Mexico: Miami security consultant still missing after a year

The case of Felix Batista remains as mysterious today as it was on Dec. 10, 2008, when the 54-year-old international security consultant — who, ironically, was an anti-kidnapping expert — was abducted outside a restaurant in Saltillo, in the northeastern state of Coahuila. He left the table where he was having lunch with some local businessmen after receiving a phone call, making an odd request of his companions: Contact my wife if you can't reach me in 30 minutes.
