MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexican authorities say a member of the popular music group Banda El Recodo has been found dead days after he was reported missing.

An official at the prosecutor's office in the northern state of Sinaloa says Aldo Sarabia's body was found early Wednesday near the port of Mazatlan. It had at least one gunshot wound and was in a state of decomposition.

The official was not authorized to discuss the case and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Sarabia was a member of the group's brass section.

Sinaloa is the home state of a number of prominent drug cartel capos.
