Two bodies discovered in Joshua Tree National Park are thought to be a pair of southern California hikers missing since July.

Joshua Tree National Park, in San Bernardino and Riverside counties, covers 792,000 acres, an area slightly larger than the state of Rhode Island, according to the National Park Service.

Twenty-year-old Rachel Nguyen of Westminster and 21-year-old Joseph Orbeso of Lakewood were last seen on July 27. When they didn't check out of their Airbnb rental the next day and their belongings were found inside their room, they were reported missing.

Earlier this summer, search teams found their vehicle near the Maze Loop trailhead. He was able to identify his son's remains.

Dombrowski: Interview with Cora "went fine"
The Red Sox previously asked for and received permission from the Astros to speak with Cora, 41. Hinch on Thursday. "He says he feels 'normal-ish.' That's, I think, a good thing to hear".

"IDs will be pending autopsies", read a tweet posted by the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department Monday morning.

Orbeso's father, Gilbert, searched sections of the park for months with friends of the couple and authorities.

According to local outlet KABC, Orbeso's father said that he and the search team discovered the bodies "embracing" on Sunday.

Four weeks into an extensive search - including canine and overhead rescue teams - efforts were scaled back to limited continuous search mode due to lack of resources.

Massive Chinese Space Station Barrels Towards Earth
As we learned from Sir Isaac Newton, "What goes up must come down", and China's Tiangong-1 space station is coming down fast. Although most parts of the space station would burn in space, yet a 100 KG of mass may hit the Earth.

The bodies, which await official identification, were found embracing, reported KABC.

Temperatures in the park had topped 100 degrees and it was unclear whether the couple had water and supplies with them. "(I) hope they can rest in peace now". "That was our main goal, to find them", Gilbert Orbeso told KESQ.

Sheriff's dispatchers received a call at 1:50 p.m. Sunday from a park ranger that two deceased victims had been found, Jodi Miller, sheriff's spokeswoman, wrote in an email.

Low mortgage rates not impressing potential new home buyers
One of the problems is that once rates reach rock bottom (which is pretty well where they are right now) the only way is up. This could be a good time for more young Americans to take out a Roth Individual Retirement Account or IRA for short.
