No breakfast for me. Maybe no lunch either. The pictures of those parents. I get upset when they lock down my kids school.

Mexico investigates new Guerrero disappearances
Mexican federal investigators are looking into the disappearance of at least 15 people in the city of Chilapa in Guerrero state, after it was overrun in early May by hundreds of gunmen.

Families told police the gunmen claimed they were community police and took away several young men.

Chilapa has been caught in battles between two rival drug gangs fighting for territorial control.
Local media say the number of disappeared could be much higher.

Last year, 43 students disappeared in another town in Guerrero, Iguala.
