A Mount Vernon couple has disappeared while vacationing in the Dominican Republic.

Orlando Moore, 43, and Portia Ravenelle, 32, have not been heard from since March 26 when they checked out of their hotel. Two weeks after the pair left their hotel overseas, their family has no answers regarding their whereabouts.

The couple flew out of Newark Airport on March 23 for a getaway in the Dominican Republic and they were supposed to return home to Mount Vernon on March 27.

According to authorities, the pair had hired a rental vehicle and were driving themselves to the airport when they disappeared.

They had been uploading photographs of their trip to social media but have gone silent since the day they vanished.

The family has said the couple never made it to their flight and their phones appear to have been shut off. The auto has not yet been located.

U.S. officials are also involved in some capacity, but the State Department was limited in what they could release to the press, only to say in an email they are aware of the missing persons case.

A spokesman for the State Department and the U.S. Embassy in Santo Domingo did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment early Monday afternoon. "For questions regarding investigations in the Dominican Republic, we refer you to local authorities", the statement concluded.
