MEXICO CITY (AP) - An attorney for the families of at least 12 people who disappeared at a Mexico City nightclub says officials discovered 13 bodies and are investigating whether they are those of the missing.

Ricardo Martinez said Thursday that federal and state prosecutors told him that 13 bodies have been found on a ranch near the southeastern suburb of Chalco and officials are trying to determine if they are those of the people who disappeared May 26 from the Heaven bar in Mexico City's Zona Rosa district.

He says a suspect in the Heaven case led officials to two graves containing the bodies.

State of Mexico officials confirm only that they are conducting a raid on a ranch near Chalco.
