Congressman Cuellar Releases Statement on Hartley Case
U.S. Congressman Henry Cuellar has released a statement regarding David Hartley's missing body.
He says, "Unfortunately, because the incident occurred in Mexican waters, the United States does not have jurisdictional authority; however we can and must continue to urge our Mexican counterparts to search for David Hartley.
The U.S. Consulate General has requested authorization for U.S. law enforcement to assist in the search, but we are still awaiting the Mexican response. I have contacted the Mexican embassy and urged them to move the case quickly."
