Woman with younger boyfriend missing in Belize

A Toronto, Canada woman is missing in Belize along with her younger American boyfriend, a friend says, and search crews have so far failed to turn up any clues indicating where they may be.

Francesca Matus, 52, and her 16 year younger boyfriend, Drew De Voursney, 36, were last seen leaving a bar called Scotty's near Matus's beachfront home in Corozal, about 130 kilometres north of the country's capital.

Matus's friend, Nancy Rifenbark, confirmed to CBC Toronto that she was with Matus and De Voursney at Scotty's, a neighbourhood bar, until about 10:45 p.m. Tuesday.

Matus was scheduled to fly to Canada on Wednesday morning, Rifenbark said. Matus lives in the Greater Toronto Area, but Rifenbark couldn't say exactly where. 

But when another of their friends, Joe Milholen, went to Matus's home to drive her to the airport, she wasn't there.

"It's a huge mystery," Rifenbark said.

Friends of De Voursney have started a GoFundMe campaign to raise money "to use every resource necessary for their safe return."

The page describes De Voursney as a former Marine who served two tours in Iraq and then worked as a contractor in Afghanistan.
