According to the FBI, someone from Mexico called the Texas police department in La Joya alleging that the agent was kidnapped from the Rio Grande Valley Area. Authorities said the threat could be legitimate because the caller identified himself as a member of a drug cartel.

Border Patrol officials said they are contacting approximately 3100 agents in the Rio Grande Valley to determine if any agents are missing.
