No sign of journalist who vanished in Q.R. after reporting threats, being followed

Cancún, Quintana Roo --
Oscar Díaz Peniche, 72, failed to show up for a regular Tuesday morning breakfast in Cancún with an old friend and colleague. The last time anyone heard from him was the evening before, Monday, July 16.

Peniche had managed papers in Quintana Roo and Campeche, and had also worked in radio. A native of Yucatán, he was retired but remained active.

Peniche's car was found parked outside of his office, the door to which still held the keys. There was no sign of violence or a struggle.

Pencihe told friends and family members in the days before his disappearance that he had received threats by telephone, and that he had been followed while driving. But he didn't elaborate.

The Quintana Roo state prosecutor has opened a formal investigation.
