MEXICO CITY (AP) — Another young woman has been added to the list of young people apparently abducted as a group from an after-hours bar in a normally calm district of Mexico City, raising the number of missing to 12, prosecutors said Tuesday night.Chief prosecutor Rodolfo Rios also announced that two of the bar's waiters and a woman he did not identify had been detained in the case.Rios said surveillance video showed most of the group of seven men and five women arriving at the bar together in a car and in a taxi. He wouldn't say if there was footage showing them leaving or being abducted on a side street in the Zona Rosa entertainment district not far from the U.S. Embassy."We're still analyzing the footage to see how they got out of this place," Rios said, adding that investigators were going through video from 12 surveillance cameras in the area.A man who said he escaped the mass abduction from the bar on May 26 told authorities that masked men with guns and SUVs kidnapped the group in broad daylight, just off the Paseo del Reforma, one of the city's main avenues.The man talked to authorities when he accompanied relatives of one of the missing youths to file a report, but the man gave police a false name and address and authorities haven't been able to locate him since then, Rios said.
