LORAIN, Ohio — There was a desperate search on Sunday in Lorain for a couple who went missing in early February. It included more than 100 volunteers and even a national group known for searches.
Nathan Orono, 20, and Alaina "Alice" Camacho, 18, were seen last on Feb. 1 at the Sheffield Estates on Oneil Boulevard, where Orono lived. They left in Camacho’s car, a gold 2004 Honda Accord. Their families are now frantic.
"[They're haven't] been any leads or tips as far as I,m concerned, so that’s kind of upsetting," Evelyn Orona, Nathan's mother, said
This weekend they had help from Texas EquuSearch, a national nonprofit that has found hundreds of missing people. They assisted with organizing a search near the Boys and Girls Club on Pearl Avenue in Lorain. Volunteers focused on abandoned buildings and walked the banks of the Black River searching for clues.
"[We're] checking out areas that we normally wouldn’t go see," Officer Miguel Baez of the Lorain Police Department told 3News.
"I’m thankful and grateful for all of these people, the community especially, for helping and supporting us," said Evelyn Orona said, adding they will not give up. "We love them, we're praying, and we're going to persevere, and Nathan, we're not going to stop, Papi. We"re going to come and we're going to come for you."
Relatives believe something is wrong and that not touching base with family is out of character. Anyone with information is asked to call 911.
