A couple missing for more than a week in the Inverness area were found alive and have been rescued, authorities said Saturday morning.
Carol Kiparsky, 77, and her husband Ian Irwin, 72, have been located, according to a Twitter post from the Marin County Sheriff’s Office shortly before 11 a.m. Saturday.
The Marin Sheriff said in a Twitter post:
“We’ve found Carol and Ian alive.”
Authorities used the Henry 1 helicopter to extract the couple, the sheriff said, but no other details were released about the location or their condition.
A large-scale search and rescue effort by air, water and land to find the couple started Feb. 15.
They were last seen Feb. 14 at a rental house on Via De La Vista in Inverness/Sea Haven and were supposed to check out the next day, but all their belongings, including phone, wallets and vehicle were left at the vacation cottage and they missed an appointment on Sunday.
