An Arizona lady has gone disappeared while vacationing in Belize.
Media reports that 43-year-old Alison MacKenzie disappeared on Saturday morning from a small island off the coast of Belize.
MacKenzie was going with her lover Paige Rote, who last saw her on Friday evening while they were tenting with a group of other adventurers at Rendezvous Cay, a small island off the coast of mainland Belize.
“They’re doing searches,” Allison’s mom Cherie MacKenzie told the media on Monday.
“So far, they haven’t appeared up with anything. We’re worried she somehow ended up in the ocean and is gone.”
The mom told the newspaper that the Coast Guard was expected to call off the search on Monday evening if MacKenzie wasn’t found, and authorities don’t have the jurisdiction to help with the investigation.

MacKenzie has been a citizen of Prescott since 1998 and reportedly has two grown children.
In a separate event, a local teenage girl was reported missing on Saturday. Jareth Herrera, 16, was last noticed on Friday daybreak when she walked from her home to attend class in Orange Walk, according to the local newspaper.
