    A person claiming to be a member of a cartel said they have kidnapped a border agent and threatened the agent's life, according to police.
    Border Patrol is making contact with all personnel in the Rio Grande Valley sector at this time.
    They have now confirmed that all agents working the day of the threat have been accounted for.
    Now, they are working to verify all those off-duty at the time of the threat are safe.
    The caller dialed 9-1-1 yesterday and said they have kidnapped a Border Patrol agent, La Joya Police Chief Geovanni Hernandez confirms.
    The La Joya Police Department contacted Border Patrol and the FBI, Hernandez said.
    A Border Patrol spokesperson did not confirm the threat, but they did confirm the agency is doing an accountability check of all agents stationed in the RGV sector.
    Right now there are more than 3,000 Border Patrol Agents stationed in the Rio Grande Valley.
    Action 4 News will continue to follow this story.
    Check back for updates.
    Statement from Border Patrol:
    As of 10 am local time all on duty RGV sector agents have been accounted for. At this time RGV sector has not been able to corroborate the authenticity of the phone call received by the La Joya Police Department. Nevertheless through an abundance of caution the sector continues to pursue existing protocols to account for all RGV sector agents. The sector is also communicating with the CBP office of internal affairs, FBI, the La Joya PD and the government of Mexico regarding the original call. The sector employs approximately 3100 agents.
