The tragic news came hours after the Americans were identified as a group of friends who travelled to Mexico so that one of them could get a tummy tuck procedure.

Family members named the group as Latavia “Tay” McGee, Shaeed Woodard, Zindell Brown and Eric James Williams, who travelled from South Carolina.

The four were travelling in a white minivan with North Carolina licence plates when they crossed the US border into Mexico on Friday.

Not long after entering Matamoros – an area dominated by the Gulf cartel – they came under fire from a group of armed men and were bundled into the back of a pickup truck.

A video circulating on social media appears to show the four friends being loaded into a pickup truck during their abduction – many of them dragged limply into the vehicle.

The FBI offered a $50,000 reward for information leading to their return and the arrest of those responsible.
