Breaking news out of Mexico. Two of the U.S. citizens abducted in the northern Mexican border city of Matamoros have been found dead, two others are found alive.

Tamaulipas Gov. Américo Villarreal said that one of the surviving U.S. citizens has been wounded, the other is unharmed.

The FBI had reported they were working with Mexican authorities to locate the four American men who were violently kidnapped Friday. Original details had emerged that the four had crossed the border, traveling together from South Carolina to purchase pharmaceutical medicine.  However, a person close to one of the men reported they had gone to Mexico so one of the men could get a tummy tuck from a Matamoros doctor.

Shortly upon entering Mexico, the group were caught in the terrifying crossfire of rival cartel groups. A video captures the four men them being forced into the back of a pickup truck by gunmen.

Villarreal confirmed the deaths by phone saying details about the four abducted Americans had been confirmed by prosecutors. Details were not shared on where or how they were found.

The US Department of State is encouraging Americans to rethink their travels to Mexico at this time.
