Delorean were recent virtual kidnapping victims in Mexico but were recovered safe and sound by Mexican and Spanish authorities. They have issued a statement regarding the event where they make some details clear including that it happened on Monday. Here is the full statement:
On Monday morning October 7th we received a phone call at our hotel room in Mexico City from a person posing as a hotel security officer. We were informed that there was a security threat at the hotel.
What followed for the next 30 hours was an experience where the threat of death was real due to the psychological manipulation inflicted on us by our kidnappers. Thanks to the fantastic work of the National Police in Spain, Ertzantza , Interpol and the Federal Police in Mexico, we were successfully rescued yesterday morning.
While it would be convenient to blame Mexico, that would not be sound. This could have occurred anywhere in the world. Our hope is that this situation will bring attention to the abuse that we were subjected to by our kidnappers, so that other travelers do not fall victim in the future.
This has been extremely difficult for us and our families. At this time we have no further comment and we ask that you respect our privacy so that we can return to normality in our lives.
Their three upcoming dates in the Pacific Northwest have been cancelled and the band will resume their North American tour on October 14.
