Parents of the 43 college students, who have been missing in southern Mexico for over six months, have lost all hope of locating their loved ones. Some of them turned to the leader of a drug gang for help, saying the official investigation has failed.
A banner hung on Tuesday by a group of parents outside the city of Iguala, where the students disappeared in September, asked alleged Rojos gang leader Santiago Mazari for help.
The handwritten sign read: “We ask you to help us locate our sons because this bad government has not been serious with us. To the contrary, it has harmed us with its lies.”
