Horry County police say the bodies of a Myrtle Beach couple traveling to New York City to visit family were found yesterday afternoon inside their crashed car off Interstate 95 near Rocky Mount, North Carolina.
Authorities say the white 2003 Mazda was found submerged in water after a transportation worker saw evidence a car might have left the highway.
Two bodies were found inside the vehicle, identified as 57-year-old Wayne Guay and 55-year-old Dianne Guay.
North Carolina Highway Patrol Lieutenant Everett Clendenin says someone called 9-1-1 on Thursday morning to report a wreck near the same location, but emergency officials couldN'T located a crashed car.
The couple were expected to leave Myrtle Beach early Thursday morning and arrive in Queens, New York, that evening. Family members became worried when calls to the couple's cell phone went straight to voice mail.
