Search Resumes for Orange County Couple Missing in Joshua Tree

Hundreds of volunteers continue to search for a Westminster duo who went missing in Joshua Tree on July 27th. 

According to family, Rachel Nguyen and Joseph Orbeso went on a hiking trip for Nguyen's birthday when they went missing. People became concerned after the two friends didn't check out of their Airbnb on Friday, leaving all their belongings behind. 

Nguyen's car was found by volunteers near a Maize Loop and continue to search for Nguyen and Orbeso. 

The High Desert Star reports authorities recorded a ping of Orbeso's cellphone on Thursday from a location inside the park. 

While the pair appeared to be in shape and had a lot of athletic equipment in their car, searchers are unsure whether the couple has any experience with outdoor survival. 

Anyone with any information is being encouraged to contact San Bernardino Dispatch at (909) 383-5652.
