Family and friends of a missing California couple bicycling through South America are frantically looking for the couple, who usually stay connected overseas through computers and social media.
Jamie Neal, 27, and her boyfriend Garrett Hand, 25, from Oakland, were last seen in Lima, Peru, on Jan. 26.
The couple's tour of Argentina, Chile and Peru began in November, and is documented in frequent posts on Neal's Facebook page.
But they vanished from the social media map Jan. 25 and have not been heard from since they arrived in Lima after biking in the Cusco region of Peru.
Francine Fitzgerald, Hand's mother in Concord, Calif., told NBC Bay Area on Monday that she's very worried because all activity has stopped on her son's bank account.
"We are trying to figure out how he would be on buses, staying in hostels, being on boats, without any money," she said.
She also hasn't seen a Facebook post or an e-mail for a month. "Somebody knows where he is," she pleaded. "Someone is with them, somewhere, so we need them to call us. We need them to come home.”
