Authorities in Greene County are investigating the disappearance of a couple from their home at 6703 N. State Highway HH in Willard.
Russell "Rusty" Wayne Porter, 34, and his wife Rebecca "Becky" E. Porter, 46, were last seen Sunday night. Detectives are waiting on a search warrant to gather evidence inside the couples home.
A family member told investigators that the doors to the couples home were unlocked and the keys to Becky Porter's car were in her vehicle. Also left behind were Rusty Porter's shoes, Becky's purse, medications and the couple's cell phones.

The Porter's have not been seen or heard from since about 8:15 p.m. when Becky Porter talked to her daughter and told her she was sick and in bed.
Security cameras outside the home were knocked down and there was a strong smell of bleach inside the residence, according to Becky Porter's brother, Darrell Hufft.
Hufft says the couple had security cameras because they lived in the country and Russell's uncle, who lives next door, "Has been giving 'em some problems. Somebody obviously knew those security cameras were there because they're broke off."
