Protests in Mexico after body of missing girl found

STORY: Escobar vanished on April 9 amid a spate of disappearances of women in Nuevo Leon's capital Monterrey that has sparked protests and intensified international scrutiny of gender violence in Mexico.

Twenty-six women and girls have disappeared in Nuevo Leon this year, and five more have been found dead after being reported missing.

The protesters demanded the resignation of the state secretary of security, Aldo Fasci.

The governor, Samuel Garcia, said this week that the local government had mobilized additional resources in the search for Escobar and other missing women.
