The Colombian army has established roadblocks and deployed various resources, including motorized platoons, drones, helicopters, and radar-equipped aircraft, in their efforts to find his father.




While the Colombian authorities have not disclosed details about the reported kidnapping, local media suggested that Diaz’s parents were abducted by armed individuals on motorcycles at a gas station in Barrancas, their hometown in La Guajira, a northern region of the country.

Colombian President Gustavo Petro confirmed that all available public forces are actively involved in the search for Diaz’s father.
