Two ‘Badly decomposed’ bodies of newly-engaged women found inside car ‘deep in woods’

Two bodies have been found inside a car similar to one in which a newly engaged couple were last seen after vanishing almost three weeks ago.

Police said the bodies were too badly decomposed for immediate identification as they search for Stephanie Mayorga, 27, and Paige Escalera, 25.

Stephanie and Paige were last seen in the north Wilmington area - not far from the University North Carolina-Wilmington campus - at an apartment at around 10pm on April 15.

North Carolina detectives said the car was found just after 3pm on Monday "deep in the woods" near Cape Fear River.

Cops confirmed the car was the same make, model and color as the 2013 Dodge Dart in which Stephanie and Paige were last seen in.

The newly engaged couple vanished without their phones, laptops or watches after they are said to have blocked friends on social media.

Cops said their roommate believed you could not report a missing person until after 72 hours had passed - so their disappearance was not reported until April 19.

CCTV video shows the couple leaving their home in the car and police last week released pictures of a similar vehicle in bid to find them.

The FBI had also been called in to assist the probe - as loved ones have been handing out fliers asking for help to bring them home.

Paige’s sister, Stevie Jenkins, said the two women had just recently moved into the apartment with another roommate.

Ms Jenkins said: "My sister and I have struggled with our relationship since we were teens. We drifted and haven’t been involved much with one another in 10 years.

"However, for Christmas this year we got to visit with one another."
