The Wilmington Police Department is on the scene where two bodies were found Monday afternoon.
Independence Boulevard and River Road was shut down Monday afternoon after police discovered a 2013 Grey Dodge Dart with two decomposed bodies inside.
The vehicle was the same vehicle Paige Escalera and Stephanie Mayorga was last seen driving April 15.
The newly married couple had just moved into their new apartment a week before they went missing. Police say a cell phone and both of the women’s belongings were left behind. The two women never returned home.
Tuesday, police came back out to the scene and has been there since 9:00 a.m.
The North Carolina Beat has learned that the vehicle was pulled out of the wooded area from the front. (The vehicle may have been backed in)
Dogs were brought to the scene to help in the ongoing investigation. We don’t have any information as to the relevancy of the dogs in this investigation.
Wilmington Police has not confirmed the identity of the bodies found but one family member of Paige Escalera took to social media to giver her condolences. (SEE POST BELOW)
