The families of the pair released a statement yesterday afternoon, confirming the pair’s van had been found by authorities. The statement comes amid reports from Mexican news website that two bodies had been found in a burnt-out van in Navolato, an area considered one of the most dangerous in the country.

The Department of Foreign Affairs says it’s providing consular assistance.

A social media campaign has been launched to try to find the men, with concerned friends using #FindDeanandAdam to share images of the pair.
