A young Los Angeles couple never returned home from a holiday trip to Big Sur, prompting police to ask for the public's help finding them on Friday.

Guzman and her family passed out fliers in the Cambria and Big Sur area on Friday with hope that someone would give them a tip on the whereabouts of the couple.

A police statement says Olivia Hannah Gonzalez, 20, and Brian Fernandez, 21, of North Hollywood, were last seen December 23 as they departed. They were traveling with their two large dogs. Their phones were turned off or went dead soon after.

Authorities told KEYT that the last known activity from the couple appeared to be the use of a credit card at Cambria General Store and gas station.

Vanessa Guzman, the sister of Gonzalez, says this is out of character for her sister not to return calls. They had been expected to return on Christmas Day.

The Monterey County Sheriff's Office released a statement on Facebook asking the community to keep an eye out for the missing couple. The stretch of Highway 1 along the Big Sur coast can be treacherous and cars have plunged off hairpin turns.

Sheriff's officials said rains were heavy last weekend in the Big Sur area and caused boulders to fall on roads in several places.

She said that it's very unlike her sister to stop all communication.
