GREENVILLE, Maine (AP) — Maine wardens say a snowmobiling husband and wife have been located alive.
Maine officials say Lloyd and Wendy Blanchard of Brewer stayed at a different lodge Sunday night than they had Saturday.
The Maine Warden Service says a miscommunication involving the Greenville hotel where they had stayed Saturday night prompted owners to report the couple missing when they did not return Sunday afternoon. Wardens launched a plea for the public's help at about noon Monday.
Officials say relatives and friends called the couple and the wardens after seeing news reports that they were missing. The couple had spent Sunday night at the Northern Outdoors Lodge in The Forks.
