The military has joined the search for Salud Hernández-Mora, a Spanish newswoman who works as the Colombian correspondent for El Mundo, a leading daily in Madrid.
Ms. Hernández-Mora has not been seen since Saturday when she tweeted from a mountain community near the Venezuelan border. The area is controlled by the rebel group, the Ejercito de Liberación Nacional.
Ironically, Ms. Hernández-Mora was in the community of El Tarra to cover a strike by the residents in support of two missing children. The youngsters have since reappeared, said El Mundo.
