MONTERREY, Mexico — A state forensic official says at least eight bodies have been pulled from a well in northern Mexico near the site where 20 people went missing late last week, including 16 members of a Colombian-style band.

The official says the Nuevo Leon State Investigative Agency is working at the site through the night in the town of Mina near the northern city of Monterrey, and the body count could rise.

The official spoke late Sunday on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the case. He said he could not confirm whether the bodies belonged to any of the missing.

Members of the band Kombo Kolombia and their crew were reported missing early Friday after playing a private show late Thursday in a bar in the nearby town of Hidalgo.
