EASTON, Conn. (AP) - Relatives of a Connecticut couple who went missing last week are denying that their disappearance is related to their more than $2 million in debt.

The family of 55-year-old Jeanette Navin and 56-year-old Jeffrey Navin of Easton addressed media reports about the couple’s debt in a statement released Thursday. Relatives said authorities told them that funds in the couple’s bank accounts haven’t been touched.

The statement says relatives are shocked and saddened by the couple’s disappearance and are wishing for their safe return.

The Navins haven’t been seen since Aug. 4 and their car was found Sunday in a commuter lot off the Merritt Parkway in Westport.

Court records indicate the couple’s debt includes $2.2 million Jeffrey Navin owed on a mortgage on a Guildford home that was foreclosed upon.
