A retired couple on holiday in northern Mexico have been found in a well just days after the pair were reported missing to authorities.
77-year-old Ian Hirschsohn and 74-yearold Kathy Harvey were found in Baja, after police discovered the couple’s vehicle in Ensenada earlier in the week.
According to CBS, the pair had been staying in a small coastal community about three hours south of the U.S.-Mexico border.
“They are now confirmed deceased in Mexico and family has been notified,” a SDPD spokesperson wrote in an email to News 8.
The retired San Diego couple had been staying for about a week at a house near El Socorrito south of San Quintin. Their rental house was about 321km south of the border, according to family members.
Mrs Hervey’s son, Robert, reportedly received a text from his mother who said she and Mr Hirschsohn were planning on exploring a local gold mine or possibly visit a beach in the lead up to their disappearance. The couple indicated they would return to San Diego on August 31, but family lost contact with them.
Mr Hervey said his mum had a love of travel and planned to do much more of it during retirement.
“She was really enjoying retirement and had multiple groups of friends,” h told CBS.
“She loved walking and travelling. She had a huge bucket list of where she wanted to go.”
Family said there is now an active police investigation into the deaths and foul play is suspected.
