A New York couple has mysteriously disappeared while on vacation in the Dominican Republican, and their families say they haven’t heard from them in two weeks.
Portia Ravenelle and Orlando Moore travelled to the Dominican Republic on March 23, and were supposed to return to Mount Vernon, New York, on March 27.
Police said the couple checked out of their hotel in Samana, but their car is still parked at Newark International Airport in New Jersey, NBC New York reported.
Police said Ravenelle and Orlando didn’t make it on to their flight to Newark, and there is no record of them returning to the United States.
Moore’s sister, Lashay Turner, called police after not hearing from her bother or his girlfriend on the day they were scheduled to leave the Dominican Republic.
The couple were staying at Grand Bahia Principe Cayacoa hotel and had posted romantic photos throughout their trip, according to People en Español.
Their phones are going straight to voicemail, Dominican Today reported.
Turner said her brother rented a car while on vacation, but there is no sign of where the vehicle currently is.
“We’ve been calling DR and they said they didn’t make their flight,” Turner told NBC New York. “We also spoke to someone in US Customs and they said my brother did not make his flight back here.”
Authorities in the Dominican Republic are investigating, but have not speculated as to what happened to the couple.
