BEAUMONT (CBSLA.com) – Authorities are searching for a couple missing since Wednesday whose car was found abandoned in Beaumont Friday morning.
According to Indio police, on Wednesday, 26-year-old Audrey Moran left her mother’s Coachella home to pick up her boyfriend, 28-year-old Jonathan Reynoso, in Coachella, and then drive him to his Palm Desert home.
According to police, at 8:45 p.m. Wednesday, Audrey’s sister received a selfie photograph message on her cell phone of Audrey and Jonathan, which appeared to have been taken at Jonathan’s Palm Desert home. The selfie marked the last contact anyone made with the missing couple. After being unable to get ahold of the couple, family members contacted police Thursday.
