WARNER SPRINGS, California — Authorities were trying to determine on Sunday whether a man found dead and a woman found dehydrated in rural San Diego County are the Orange County couple that went missing two weeks ago.
The pair was discovered around 2:30 p.m. near a Boy Scouts camp on the Los Coyotes Indian Reservation, just outside Warner Springs, said sheriff's Lt. Jim Bolwerk. He said investigators were trying to determine who they are and what happened to them.
The woman was airlifted to a hospital for treatment.
The San Diego Union-Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1AolVGQ) the man's body was found near a white car and the woman was found inside the vehicle.
It's possible they are Cecil Knutson, 79, and Dianna Bedwell 68, who were last seen leaving the Valley View Casino in Valley Center, about 25 miles west of the wilderness camp, on May 10. Authorities said the two were planning on going to their son's home in the Palm Springs area for a Mother's Day dinner but never arrived.
They were driving a 2014 White Hyundai Sonata when they visited the casino.
