Carlos Alejandro Delgadillo Romero, another medical student who was with him, was found dead in a nearby street and was shot with an AK-47-style rifle, according to news reports.

The Mexican authorities feared that Pacheco might have been abducted before she was located.

Enrique Alfaro, the state of the governor of Jalisco, said Friday in Spanish that Pacheco was found safe and returned to the United States.

He tweeted: & # 39; It is also important to say that Jessy Pacheco, the American student who reported missing, is safe.

& # 39; He left for the city of Dallas a few hours ago, accompanied by his mother. & # 39;

Pacheco & # 39; s brother, Carlos Robles Franco, told it Democratic Gazette of Arkansas: & # 39; Yes, sir! Glory to God. He lives. & # 39;

Witnesses said a group driving a red car had attacked Delgadillo, shot it and then drove away, according to the Arkansas Democrat Gazette.

Authorities discovered a black cell phone, a tennis shoe, two cigarette butts and five cases, according to local news reports.

& # 39; Local businesses have evacuated all their customers and are closed to avoid getting involved in this incident. & # 39;

Employees at a nearby convenience reportedly told police that Delgadillo had bought cigarettes shortly before his death.

While he waited for an Uber to arrive in the short term, the passengers in a red car shot him and then fled the scene, witnesses said.

During the week, Pacheco's brother said the family remained hopeful and prayed that he was safe.

He claimed: & # 39; We did not give up hope to find him alive, and we ask God for mercy and a miracle. We miss him so much. & # 39;

Romero also studied with Pacheco at the medical faculty of Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajara. NBC reported that his aunt identified his body after it was sent home.

The US Department of Foreign Affairs confirmed Romero's death and added: & # 39; out of respect for family privacy, we have no further comments at this time. & # 39;
