Friends and family of Forrest and Donna Sanco have launched a GoFundMe page to raise money to help find the couple.
The newlywed pair left their home in Fort Worth, Texas, bound for the Bahamas last month.
But the couple never made it to their destination – instead vanishing into thin air.
Forrest and Donna flew their 51-year-old Cessna 150 aircraft from Fort Worth to North Eleuthera for a planned refuelling pitstop.
On September 25 they landed in the Bahamas for their stopover, before posting a photo on Instagram of the sunrise.
But this was their last correspondence to family and friends.
The pair were due to fly from North Eleuthera to Rum Cay, a two hour flight away, which was the destination of their honeymoon.
But they never arrived for their week-long holiday, instead disappearing altogether, along with their plane.
Forrest and Donna’s family contacted local authorities in the Caribbean when they found out they were missing.
But government resources are limited due to the impact of recent hurricanes that have decimated many islands in the region.
The family have raised £9,000 on the GoFundMe account, which has helped them to hire private search-and-rescue teams.
But so far searches have proven fruitless, with no sign of the light plane or the newlywed pair.
