McALESTER, Okla. (AP) — DNA taken from two unknown people found dead in southeastern Oklahoma more than 20 years ago did not match a missing Texas couple as hoped.

Pittsburg County Sheriff Chris Morris told the McAlester News-Capital the DNA does not match relatives of a Dangerfield, Texas, couple who disappeared around the same time the bodies known as John Doe and Jane Doe were found in 1995.

Authorities have said the bodies of the man and a woman were found with gunshot wounds and investigators believed they were killed and dumped by travelers on nearby U.S. 69.

The bodies were exhumed in May from a cemetery north of McAlester, about 100 miles (161 kilometers) southeast of Oklahoma City.

Morris said the DNA will be entered into a national missing persons database.
