Law enforcement officials are looking for an elderly Kansas couple who have not been heard from since Monday.

Police say 91-year-old Vernon Hunt and 81-year-old Goldie Hunt of Garnett left their home Monday for a trip to Dwight, Ill. Relatives believe the couple planned to drive Interstate 70 from Kansas City to St. Louis and Interstate 55 to Dwight.

Their vehicle is a black 2005 Chrysler 300 with Kansas plates 473FNM.

Their son, Jay Selanders, said the couple has a cell phone but it has apparently not been turned on.
