A search is ongoing for an Arizona couple who disappeared while kayaking in Mexico on Thanksgiving, authorities said.

Corey Allen and his wife Yeon-Su Kim of Flagstaff were kayaking with their teen daughter around 1 p.m. Thursday in Puerto Peñasco, also known as Rocky Point, Mexico, when winds began to pick up, family and friends have said. Allen helped their daughter back to shore and it is believed he went back for Kim before the couple went missing.

Authorities in Mexico tweeted that a search for two Americans is ongoing, along with a photo of the couple.

"Sonora Civil Protection maintains coordination with the Secretary of the Navy and municipal authorities in the search for two people of American origin who disappeared in Puerto Peñasco after a kayak trip," the post read.

Shelly Thomas, a close friend of the couple, told the station that Allen and Kim are "amazing friends and wonderful parents" who are an important part of the Flagstaff community.
