SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) - A Southern California couple visiting Nepal has not been heard from since the crushing earthquake that struck Nepal.
Friends of 58-year-old A. Michelle Page and 65-year-old Daniel Adams have filed a missing person report with U.S. officials after failing to connect with them.
The Los Angeles Times reports (https://lat.ms/1IcScli) the Santa Monica couple left for Nepal on Tuesday and was planning to stay at a hotel in Kathmandu, close to a Buddhist monument that was toppled by the quake.
Friends say Page visits Nepal twice a year to commission local artists to paint custom “Beware of Dog” signs that adorn most Nepalese homes. She would sell the works to American pet lovers.
The magnitude-7.8 earthquake that ripped across the Himalayan nation on Saturday has killed more than 2,500 people.
