The bodies of a NY couple that went missing in late March in the Dominican Republic have been found, according to the nation's national police spokesperson.

According to Dominican Republic National Police spokesman Col Frank Felix Durán Mejia, a woman believed to be Ms Ravenelle was found alive but critically injured on the Las Americas highway on 27 March, the same day the pair went missing.

The Dominican newspaper Diario Libre reported that police believe the couple may have gotten into a auto accident on their way to the airport.

An unconscious woman fitting Ravenelle's description was found on March 27 near a road leading to the airport, and transported to an area hospital, Duran Mejia said, according to the report.

The body of a man pulled from the Caribbean Ocean on March 31 had a tattoo of the word "Milano" which matches one on Orlando Moore, 40, according to national police.

A second body that was recovered - a badly decomposed male - has not yet been identified but police believe it is likely Orlando Moore's. The U.S. State Department has announced they are working with local authorities in an attempt to track down Moore and Ravenelle.

Fishermen reported a vehicle in the ocean, according to Duran Mejia.
