MARICOPA, Ariz. (AP) - Volunteers, including a paraglider, set out Friday in search of a missing Maricopa couple.

KPNX-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1fJD30i) that searchers started around sunrise to look for any sign of Tina and Michael Careccia.

The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office says there have been no leads since the couple’s 2008 Honda Accord was found abandoned Monday night about half a mile from their home.

Sheriff’s spokesman Mark Clark says they were reported missing after Tina Careccia never showed up to her job at a construction company earlier in the day.

Since then, rescue teams have been going door to door and using search dogs. Authorities have also done air searches.

Clark says authorities are still trying to determine if they disappeared of their own volition or at the hands of someone else.

He says there is no connection to a bank robbery earlier this week where some commented that the suspect resembled Tina Careccia.
