Danela Alfaro-Lopez and Justin Gouveia were reported missing on July 27.

BOSTON, Massachusetts (AP) -- Two university students who vanished from a motel on Cape Cod and failed to show up for meetings with their parents have turned up in Florida.

Leanne Gouveia, mother of 21-year-old Justin Gouveia of Lowell, said a private investigator called her husband, Joseph, on Saturday and said her son and Danela Alfaro-Lopez of Dearborn, Michigan, had been located and were OK.

"I'm shaking, I'm so ecstatic," she said. "It's beautiful, it's just beautiful."

The couple were found at a motel in the Orlando area, said Elise Camille, a spokeswoman for the Orange County, Florida, sheriff's office.

"They're fine. They're calling their parents," Camille said. She said the couple didn't use their cell phones or credit cards and only used cash. "I don't know, maybe they didn't want to be found," she said.

Justin Gouveia and Alfaro-Lopez, 19, both Michigan State University students, had last been seen leaving a bed and breakfast in Yarmouth, Massachusetts, on July 26. They didn't check out but left the room key and enough money to cover their stay, police said.

They were supposed to meet Gouveia's parents in Maine on July 27 but never showed, Joseph Gouveia said.

Alfaro-Lopez's parents waited for her to return on a flight to Detroit Metropolitan Airport but she never arrived. Her mother, a Wayne County assistant prosecutor, said the couple met five years ago.

Alfaro-Lopez is a sophomore and Gouveia is a senior and both are political science and prelaw majors.

I don't know about these students, but my parents didn't keep hawk eye tabs on where I was and what I was doing when I was in college. I became an adult, and was treated as such. Now perhaps these two should have told a roommate or someone that they were leaving town for a vacation so as to not generate a missing person search. But people over here are acting like a couple of 13 year old kids ran away from home.

While understanding what you mean....if I had intentionally avoided my parents after making plans, to the extent of not using my cell phone, paying with cash to avoid leaving a trail, and turning up in Florida...no matter what age an ass whoopin is in order. My daughter pulls that S*** on me, they would have hell to pay.

First, them not using credit cards and such may be true, but saying that they did it to avoid people is PURELY speculation.

Any parents that treat their college kids like children need to be smacked.

I agree it is speculation, but "if" those are the circumstances...an ass whoopin is in order.

I think the parents need to get a life! Their kids are now adults, not living under their roof and, no matter what their parents think, can do what they please with themselves to answer to. As a courtesy, the kids may have informed the parents of what they were doing (had done), and that should have happened here, but I agree that the parents definitely overreacted here.
