The incident occurred on Monday shortly after 1 AM, when seven armed men intervened into a trendy restaurant on the Mexican beach resort, Puerto Vallarta.

Those armed men separated men from the women and left with a high-value captive.

Read on to find out what happened.

Jalisco Attorney General Eduardo Almaguer said at a news conference on Tuesday:


That, Jesus Alfredo Guzman, the 29-year-old son of jailed Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, was among the six men kidnapped.

Guzman is thought to be involved with Sinaloa cartel, now the kidding has caused the latest blow to his efforts.

His brother Ivan Archivaldo Guzman is also thought to be involved with the Sinaloa cartel...

...along with Guzman's son by another woman, Ovidio Guzmán Lopez.

It is believed that a criminal group is responsible for the kidnapping.

The additional men were identified as Juan Daniel Calva Tapia, 53, Josias Nahujali Rabago Borbolla, 35 and Víctor Galvan Ureña, 46.

Almaguer said:

"At this moment, we have identified four of the kidnapped, one of them being Jesus Alfredo Guzman."

Jesus Alfredo is the youngest of El Chapo's two children from his first marriage. 

His older brother, Ivan Archivaldo Guzman, was imprisoned in Mexico in 2005 but released three years later for lack of evidence. 

The Mexican army and other authorities are searching for the missing men as well as those responsible.
