According to the Esmeralda County Sheriff's Office, Ronnie and Beverley Barker's phone last pinged on March 28 on the Coaldale area, approximately 40 miles west of Tonopah along U.S. 95/U.S. 6. However, the couple's nephew Travis Peters says the ping was on March 27.
The couple left Albany, Oregon on March 26, bound for Tucson — but they never arrived.
The Barkers were traveling in a white 2015 Sunseeker motorhome with black decals and Indiana license plate C128H. The RV was pulling a 2020 Kia Soul on a car dolly, sheriff's officials said.
Police say both 72-year-old Ronnie and 69-year-old Beverley Barker and their vehicles have been entered into a missing person database.
