SEQUOIA NATIONAL PARK (AP) — Police have located car parts that may belong to a vehicle driven by a missing couple in California’s Sequoia National Park.
Authorities say 31-year-old Yinan Wang and his wife 30-year-old Jie Song were last seen Aug. 6 in the park.
They were scheduled to return home to San Diego on Aug. 9, but never made it.
A Fresno County Sheriff’s deputy watching local television coverage of a different recovery effort of two Thai students in the Kings River has helped in the case.
On television, the deputy spotted a California license plate in the brush that he knew did not belong to a Thai student’s car. A records check showed it is registered to a white Ford Focus driven by Wang and Song.
Deputies are now working a dual recovery effort. No bodies have been found.
