BOGOTA, Colombia —

Colombian police and Honduras foreign relations ministry are investigating reports that at least two computers were stolen during a party at the Honduran embassy in Bogota that involved presumed prostitutes.

Police Col. Jose Elias Baquero said police are searching for what he describes as two "contracted women" who attended the Dec. 20 party.

He says Honduran officials have confirmed that there was a party in which two portable computers were stolen, but that they prefer to handle the matter internally.

The Honduran newspaper El Heraldo reports Friday that the involved presumed prostitutes and friends of an embassy employee, and it says other damage was done to the building.

The embassy did not respond to repeated calls seeking comment, but the Foreign Ministry in Tegucigalpa said it has launched an investigation to find out what happened.

In a statement, the foreign relations office said it will hand over a full report to the minister by Monday, at the latest.
