HIDALGO COUNTY - State law enforcement officials confirmed the presence of a civilian militia in the Rio Grande Valley.
The group, however, has not made contact with any law enforcement group.
The group, known as the Minutemen, was initially trying to set up camp earlier this week near the international bridge in Pharr. They left after property owners said they didn't want them on their land.
Authorities say the group headed west.
