The missing married couple was identified as Gary and Lorraine Parker of Warren Grove. They are 67- and 60-years-old, respectively. 

The Stafford Township Police Department’s ATV Unit with the assistance of the Ocean County Sheriffs Department ATV Unit have been conducting off-road searches of the Warren Grove area. 

The New Jersey State Police Aviation Unit's helicopter also has been assisting as the ground and aerial search continues into a second day.

Police warned hunters to be "extremely vigilant" since more than 100 people were participating in the search. Most of the search activity was reported to be off of  Cedar Bridge Road and Warren Grove Road in Stafford and Barnegat. 

Their daughter Lindsay posted this message on Facebook: 

The couple was last seen a week ago and spoke with family or friends on Sunday, NJ Advance Media reported, quoting Stafford Capt. James Vaughn. “We have searched hundreds of acres of the Pine Barrens,” Vaughn told in an email.
