Another abducted Texan is freed

From Times Wire Reports

A Texas man kidnapped from his Mexican hunting ranch three weeks ago was released in good condition and crossed the border into Laredo, officials said.

Santos Vasquez, a prosecutor in the Mexican border state of Coahuila, where the kidnapping occurred, did not say whether a ransom was paid for the release of Librado Pina Jr., 49.

Vasquez said there was no information on the ranch's Mexican cook, Marco Ortiz, who was kidnapped Nov. 26 along with Pina, his son and two other men. All the others have been freed.
