It’s been more than a week since Adam Coleman and Dean Lucas were last heard from. The two surfers, who hail from the Gold Coast of Australia are currently missing and Mexico news outlets are reporting that their bodies have been discovered in a incinerated van that matches the description of the Chevrolet automobile they were driving at the time.
There has not been confirmation that the two bodies belong to Coleman and Lucas.
The two were traveling through Navolato, Sinaloa on a surfing vacation at the time of the incident.
The area is infamous for being home to cartels and narcos. The two 33-year olds started their trip in Edmonton, Alberta and were eventually bound for Guadalajara in the Mexican state of Jalisco, where Mr. Coleman’s girlfriend Andrea Gomez resides.
Meanwhile Coleman’s mother is fearing the worst. “He has gone to surf a bigger wave, I’ll always miss you son,” she said in a Facebook post on Sunday evening. Members of the Lucas and Coleman families will be travelling to Mexico this week. Meanwhile a fundraising page has been setup by Coleman’s mother.
