At least 18 illegal immigrants from Guatemala have been rescued after receiving a tip that they were being held for ransom.

Mission police told Action 4 News that people in Guatemala called reporting that their family member was being held against their will.

They traced the call to a cell phone coming out of a home on the 5800 block of Moorefield Road.

Mission police, Border Patrol and Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office deputies showed up around 4 p.m. Wednesday.

They found 18 undocumented immigrants from Guatemala inside.
