But they never made their flight home scheduled for March 27th.  The couple was lodged at the Grand Bahia Principe Cayacoa resort in the northeast town of Samana.  According to officials, the hotel reported that the couple checked out a day early than their scheduled departure date.  They were seen from hotel staff entering rental car to leave the hotel, and have not been scene sense.
