Lesbian Couple Vanishes Without A Trace In N.C. As Desperate Families Seek Answers

A lesbian couple in North Carolina has disappeared without a trace, and their families are asking the public to please share any information they might have to help locate them.

Stephanie Mayorga, 27, and Paige Escalera, 25, have not been seen since April 15, according to a Facebook post by the Wilmington Police Department.

The pair was last seen in the area of Kerr Ave./Randall Parkway, possibly traveling in a dark grey Dodge Dart with South Carolina tags, the post says.

Escalera and Mayorga are a recently engaged couple, according to Escalera’s Facebook page.

The women were reported missing three days after their roommate last saw them, Escalera’s sister, Stevie Jenkins, wrote in a Facebook post.

Escalera left her phone at the apartment which was later handed over to police as evidence.

“As I have been contacting her close friends, I have found that every single one of them had been blocked from her social media over the last week or two,” Jenkins told Oxygen. “It is normal for family to not hear from her, but not her closest friends. As I spoke with Stephanie’s friends, they say it isn’t normal at all that they don’t hear from Stephanie.”

Jenkins said that her sister wasn’t close to family but had recently completed her GED and was attending college. She said that Escalera was actively working on her relationship with her family.

“I am at a loss,” she said. “I was just rekindling my relationship with my sister that has not been so well for the last 10 years. For the first time in a long time I felt like I finally had her back.”

“If anyone has any info.. no matter what it is.. PLEASE reach out,” Jenkins wrote.

Anyone with information on their whereabouts is urged to call Wilmington police at (910)-343-3609.
