Can you help identify these persons?

ISB Special Agents and US Park Rangers of Grand Canyon National Park are seeking information about two people who may have vandalized rocks near the Yavapai Geology Museum.

On May 22, 2016, a visitor at the South Rim of the park observed a couple spray painting graffiti, and was able to capture images of the people and the vandalism.

After painting "Evans 16" on a rock feature, the couple left before US Park Rangers could contact them.
