A worried family can breathe a sigh of relief tonight after a missing couple in their 80s was safely located.

On Thursday afternoon, 88-year-old Brian Watt and 83-year-old Evelyn Watt went for a country-side drive and had not been seen since. 

Their family was concerned for their wellbeing, as both require medication.

RCMP Manitoba sent out a tweet Friday evening saying the couple had been found. 

There were no immediate details on where the could was found or how they went missing.

The RCMP says they are thankful to the public for their assistance.
