A couple who had been missing for a week have been found dead in Belize, according to reports.

American Drew DeVoursney and his Canadian girlfriend Francesca Matus were discovered on Monday evening on a road leading to a sugar cane field in the Corozal District near the Mexican border.

The Toronto Sun reports that the couple were last seen in a bar called Scotty's Bar last Tuesday night.

Matus, who had a house in the area, was supposed to return to Canada on April 26 but her friend raised the alarm when he arrived to bring her to the airport.

Searches ensued and Matus' white SUV was discovered nine miles away from the bar on Sunday.

DeVoursney (36) and Matus (52) had been dating for several months.

DeVoursney was a former Marine and served in Iraq in 2004.

Authorities are now carrying out a post-mortem on the bodies.
