A prominent former Mexican presidential candidate kidnapped in May has not been released and remains missing, contrary to earlier reports that he had been freed, the Reuters news agency has reported, quoting an unnamed government official.

REUTERS - Diego Fernandez de Cevallos, a prominent former Mexican presidential candidate kidnapped in May, remains missing and reports of his release are wrong, a well-placed government official told Reuters on Saturday.
 
The newspaper El Universal said early on Saturday that Fernandez, a member of President Felipe Calderon's National Action Party, was freed on Friday night after his family paid a ransom of around $20 million.
 
"He has not been released," said the source, who asked not to be named.
