(Scroll down for video) Members of a musical band who went missing recently were found dead, according to police reports in Mexico.

A Mexican official said that police have pulled 14 bodies from a well and that 12 of them have been identified as members of a musical band kidnapped by gunmen in northern Mexico last week.

Nuevo Leon state security spokesperson Jorge Domene said that police continue looking Tuesday for three members of the band who are still missing.

The Kombo Kolombia band was playing on a ranch, when 10 armed men entered and forced the 18 musicians and crew members into waiting vehicles.

One of the musicians escaped and led authorities to the well. Authorities have not said how the man managed to escape from his captors.

Domene told the press that detectives are investigating whether the attack was revenge for the killing of drug traffickers, but did not reveal more information.
