The family of Rachel Nguyen, the missing hiker who was missing since July, has released their first public statement since Nguyen's body was believed to be found alongside Joseph Orbeso in a remote region of Joshua Tree National Park this past weekend.

According to KESQ and KABC, the couple was last heard from in late July, and search teams later located their auto near the beginning of one of the park's trails.

It's possible they had gotten lost in an area that can have temperatures nearing 110 in the unforgiving summertime heat.

The heartbreaking discovery was made by a search team, which included Orbeso's father, Gilbert Orbeso.

Public Information Officer Jodi Miller of the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department said the agency was notified at around 1:50 p.m. on Sunday regarding the two discovered bodies in Joshua Tree National Park.

"I believed that I was going to find them". I didn't know when. I am proud to be his father and his kindness will live on in me and those who knew him best. The bodies were discovered in the same area that two former Cal State Fullerton students, Rachel Nguyen and Joseph Orbeso, went missing in late July, but authorities have yet to determine whether the cases are connected.

However, an extensive search failed to find any trace of the couple until this Sunday when rescue teams found two bodies at the end of a trail of food wrappers and water bottles. He said he followed that trail to two bodies - embracing one another. Their vehicle and fresh footprints were found at the Maze Loop trailhead the next day.

"I'm just glad that he can finally come home to us", Young said.
