Model, 24, kidnapped by a gang of four men while shopping found in mass grave with six other people

A young mother has been found dead in a mass gave after she was grabbed off the street by a gang of four men and thrown into a pick up truck.

Yessenia Estefania Alvarado, who worked as a model in Mexico, was reported missing by her parents on Friday August 14.

The 24-year-old, who was kidnapped while shopping in the city of Ciudad Obregon in the north-western Mexico, has been found dead in a grave containing at least six other bodies.

The others are yet to be identified.

Some reports say that there may be at least five more bodies added to the total that were found in the grave, although the extra deaths have not yet been confirmed by prosecutors.

Mum-of-one Yessenia was initially identified when relatives recognised clothing found in the mass grave as belonging to the young woman, and DNA analysis has now confirmed the identity.

When she vanished, her brother Juan Carlos Alvarado Rivera posted her photograph online appealing for help to find her.

He said: "You're going to come back sister you're a very good woman, you don't mess with anyone, you're a super mum you're going to come back because this is all a misunderstanding and because of the love you have for your son."

When news of her death was then confirmed, he wrote: "Fly high sister. I'm going to miss you so much my sister, my life partner, see you soon to be back together, my Queen."

The local police also found the remains of six other bodies in the grave including three men, two women, and a victim whose gender has not been established yet.
