A NY couple has been missing for two weeks following a holiday to the Dominican Republic, according to their family.

According to reports, 43-year-old Orlando Moore and his 32-year-old girlfriend Portia Ravenelle were due back from the Dominican Republic on March 27th, but did not return home.

Moore had told the other couple that he'd made friends with the resort bartender, who recommended a friend in El Limón to take them sightseeing.

She was nervous about driving the rental vehicle, a white Kia, to the airport for their 2 a.m. flight after the rental company warned them not to stop for anyone along the way, Freeman said. "He's not just going to run off on a hiatus and not tell his family", his sister Lashay Turner told reporter Wale Aliyu of NBC 4 NY. The last picture they are believed to have posted to social media shows them riding horses during the vacation. They reportedly checked out of their hotel-the Grand Bahia Principe Cayacoa-in Samana on the 27th, but never made it onto their flight back to the US, or returned their rental vehicle.

According to multiple reports, Moore and Ravenelle had rented a auto during their stay in the Dominican Republic, though that vehicle has since vanished and there is no sign of it. The auto has not yet been located.

According to NBC New York, they failed to return from their brief vacation on March 27.

Police said they have found two bodies they say have "characteristics similar to the American couple" who were supposed to have returned to America on March 27.

In a statement to BET, a State Department spokesperson said they are aware of the reports but have no additional information to provide. Investigators have confirmed that the Ravenelle and Moore left the hotel on the evening of March 26 and were set to drive to the airport to catch a flight back to the U.S. "We stand ready to provide appropriate assistance to USA citizens in need and to their families".

Moore's anxious sister told NBC news that she had been in contact with police both in the Dominican Republic and in the United States but that no one has heard anything. "Due to privacy considerations, we have no further information to offer at this time". CNN has reported that the Dominican Republic National Police are not providing any details regarding their investigation and the Dominican Republic's Washington, DC Embassy in Washington, DC could not be reached for comment.
