Well it must have crashed if it was seen falling, if that is what the translation means, " Three missing after falling helicopter sea in Almeria"
That was another accident, in January. Click that text you mentioned and you'll see.

You'd be surprised. They could easily have simply leased an Mi-26 without telling them who they were working for or anything except that they were moving a helicopter. The cartels have access to some pretty impressive technology though, such as the semisubmersibles, and submersibles.
As for radars, unless they were close to one, it would have to see over terrain and other features that block radar. They don't fly very high when they're moving a helicopter that way.
Not saying that's definitely what did happen, just that it's a possibility.
