The couple from Flagstaff was last seen about 1 p.m. Thursday. A missing persons report was filed that night and a search started on Friday, said a spokesman for Sonora’s civil protection agency.

In a Facebook post about  3:30 p.m. Saturday, the agency said the search continued and asked for help from other agencies in Sonora.

It said searches had been conducted using four private aircraft in various areas around the beach community.
