By BBN Staff: Confirmed reports to BBN is that the bodies of Canadian national, Francesca Matus, and American national Drew Devoursney were found today by a search party.
The bodies were found in an area in Chan Chen Village in the Corozal District this evening around 5.
The couple was reported missing on Wednesday when their friend, American national Joseph Milholen, went to pick up Matus to drop her off at the Philip Goldson International Airport.
Milholen reported that he called her several times but to no avail.
Milholen also called Devoursney but received no response.
Since Wednesday, the police and volunteers had organized search parties and yesterday the white Isuzu rodeo was found abandoned in a cane field in the village of Paraiso in the Corozal district.
While it is suspected that the couple was murdered, the Belize Police Department has not yet released an official report.
