Relatives of a missing Essex couple appealed to the public for help Sunday.
It's been almost five days since Bill and Lorraine Currier's relatives reported them missing. On Sunday they made an emotional plea for help.
"Bill and Lorraine Currier are kind and caring, beloved members of our family. We are heartbroken by their disappearance and at a lost to explain or understand it," said Diana Smith, Bill Currier's sister. "We're here today to plead for anyone's help in doing this and please keep Bill and Lorraine in your prayers."
A picture of the couple was held up during the brief meeting with members of the media. Police say the family asked to talk to the press several days after the couples mysterious disappearance. Police say a window was broken at their Colbert Street home and police say the Currier's crucial daily medications had been left behind.
"If anyone has seen anything between Wednesday, or their car please call Essex Police Department," Smith said.
Police found the couple's green sedan at the Pearl Street Apartments, just miles from the Currier's home. Detectives taped off the scene and questioned residents.
Now their family is doing anything they can to see their loved ones again. "Bill and Lorraine, if you can hear this, know that we all love you and we're doing everything we can do to find you and bring you home," Diana Smith said.
The family did not take any questions from the media, saying they wanted to respect the police investigation. Police on Sunday released no new information. They are still classifying the disappearance as suspicious but have not said if they suspect any foul play.
