2 Americans dead, two back in USTwo of the four Americans missing since their brazen and violent abduction last week after crossing the border into Mexico have been found dead and two others are alive, Mexican officials said Tuesday.

One of the surviving U.S. citizens was found wounded and the other was unharmed, Tamaulipas Gov. Américo Villarreal said after confirming two Americans died.

Both survivors were returned to the United States, Tamaulipas state Attorney General Irving Barrios Mojica said. A convoy of Mexican ambulances and SUVs was escorted by Mexican military Humvees, armored vehicles, state police and National Guard in trucks with mounted .50-caliber machine guns. It was not immediately clear if the bodies of those killed had been returned.

One suspect was in custody, authorities said.

Mexican officials said the Americans vanished Friday after getting caught in the crossfire of rival cartel groups in the border city of Matamoros in Tamaulipas state, just below Brownsville, Texas. The gunmen unleashed a barrage of bullets on the Americans after they crossed the border in a white minivan, the FBI reported.
