A missing couple have been found shot to death in a woodland in the US.

The bodies of Stephen Reid, 67, and Djeswende Reid, 66, were discovered in the woods in Concord, New Hampshire, on Thursday evening.

Family and friends had not heard from the pair since Monday, when they went for a walk in the woods.

Police have launched a murder investigation following the discovery of their bodies.

Geoffrey Ward, New Hampshire’s senior assistant attorney general, said: “Anyone who saw the Reids that Monday afternoon, anyone walking on those trails, anyone who has any information related to their disappearance or deaths are asked to contact the Concord Police Department about anything that they saw or heard that afternoon.”

In a statement, police previously said: “Stephen and his wife Djeswende ‘Wende’ Reid were last seen by family on Sunday April 17, 2022 at a family member’s home in Concord, NH.
