Relatvies lost track of the sister between Ishpeming and Mackinaw City where they were to check into a hotel and they never did.  Mackinaw City is where you go to get on the ferry to go to Mackinac Island.  They talked about going to some waterfalls, and police are checking on that.

They have cellphones but no one has been able to reach them.
