Deputies were seen entering the Maricopa home Wednesday afternoon. In the early evening deputies were observed digging in the back yard and taking photographs of the area they were digging.

Since then, dozens have searched the area around Maricopa looking for a sign of the couple.

We shall continue our search and investigation simultaneously. We ask anyone who has any information to come forward and speak with my detectives. We have no further details at this time, we are looking to provide the family and our community with answers, yet we are restricted due to the nature of this investigation,” said Sheriff Paul Babeu.
