A Peruvian diplomat disappeared without trace in the Russian capital in the early hours of 2011 and may have been murdered, Russian investigators said on Wednesday.

The embassy's second secretary, identified in statement by Russia's Investigative Committee of Prosecutors as Sergio Alonso del Castillo, vanished after "leaving the Rolling Stone club around 6:00 am on January 1, with nothing further known about his whereabouts by his colleagues."

A criminal probe has been launched into a possible murder, the statement said. The trendy Rolling Stone bar in Moscow is located in the central part of town on the Moscow river.
