Missing Couple: A Liberty County couple who went missing Thursday is safe. Liberty County Sheriff Bobby Rader's spokesman, Capt. Ken DeFoor, said the elderly couple disappeared after withdrawing money from a bank. Then 78-year-old Perfecto Gonzalez and his wife, 75-year-old Consuelo Torres, didn't return home until late Saturday. They reported visiting a friend; however, neither family nor a sheriff's deputy was able to confirm the name or location of the friend's home. Family members say, due to medical concerns, they plan to take the vehicle's keys away to ensure the couple's future safety.
