The mystery surrounding the disappearance of an Essex couple continues to grow, now nearly a month after Bill and Lorraine Currier were last seen.
Flowers, signs and a balloon were left at the front steps of the couple's Colbert Street home Monday morning -- a tribute for Lorraine on her 56th birthday. A neighbor said a relative dropped them off in the morning. The balloon, emblazoned with the words, "Our thoughts and prayers are with you," floated next to the door. A sign taped to the door read, "We love you and miss you."
Police have searched around the property multiple times. Their car was discovered shortly after they disappeared about a mile away. Police say they are growing increasingly concerned that one or both of the Currier's may no longer be alive. Anyone with information is asked to call Essex Police.
