Dean Lucas and Adam Coleman were travelling in a van towards Guadalajara, but failed to arrive at their destination by November 21 as planned.
Yesterday, their households issued a statement saying they had been conscious the van had been located by Mexican authorities and that a “tragic event” had taken location.
But they stressed they had been nevertheless waiting for information to be confirmed and asked the media not to speculate.
Earlier, Mr Lucas’s Canada-based girlfriend, Josie Cox, attempted to harness social media in an attempt to find the guys, using the hashtag #finddeanandadam.
In a Facebook post, Ms Cox stated the final confirmed sighting was when they got off a ferry at Topolobampa late on Friday, November 20 at 10:00pm.
She mentioned Mr Lucas had been due to board a flight to London in a handful of days’ time.
The men’s disappearance had been reported to regional authorities who had officially classed them as missing persons, Ms Cox said.
She mentioned she planned to meet Mr Coleman’s girlfriend, Andrea Gomez, in Mexico.
Ms Gomez, who lives in Guadalajara, spoke to the ABC by way of Facebook messenger on Sunday.
She confirmed the two would meet to evaluate details face-to-face.
“Tomorrow I will meet with Josie (Cox), she will travel from Canada to Puerto Vallarta,” she wrote.
