    Mexican authorities say armed men have abducted multiple people from an upscale restaurant in the popular beach resort city of Puerto Vallarta. 

    Prosecutors in the western state of Jalisco say two SUVs carrying an unknown number of gunmen arrived around 1 a.m. at the restaurant on the city's main boulevard, which runs through the hotel zone. 

    The Jalisco prosecutors' office said Monday in a statement that it was still investigating. Five vehicles were abandoned at the restaurant, but it was unclear whether they belonged to any of the victims or attackers.

    Mexican media reports say as many as 16 people were abducted, but authorities did not immediately confirm the number.

    A Huntington Beach man has set a record for most consecutive visits to Disneyland. Jeff Reitz, 44, has visited the park 2,000 times in a row. Reitz started visiting the park every day when he was unemployed and wanted to keep his spirits up. Employed at the VA now, Reitz continues to visit every day after work because it helps him to decompress after a long day. His favorite ride is the Matterhorn Bobsleds, which he first rode with his mom when he was 2 years old.
