The New Hampshire couple was on a cross-country RV road trip and were last seen on Oct. 15 as they left the Padre Balli Park, Mendoza said.

Williams has not been charged for the Butlers' deaths and no arrest warrant has been issued for Noverr, authorities said Tuesday. Both are believed to be from the Utah area, authorities said.
