Staff Report

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Citing the death of a missionary earlier this week, the Texas Department of Public Safety has warned Texans to avoid traveling in Mexico.

The warning, issued Friday, is the fourth in the last year.

Missionary Nancy Davis, 59, was killed earlier this week. The DPS also cited the shooting of an American on the Mexican side of Falcon Lake in late September, the killing of a University of Texas-Brownsville student in October and the suspected abduction of 4 men from San Marcos and a 14-year-old from Chicago who were visiting Nuevo Laredo in late November.

"We know that many of our Winter Texans enjoy traveling to Mexico, but they should understand that we cannot guarantee their safety after they cross the border," said Steven C. McCraw, DPS director.
