Missing British newlyweds found safe in Canada
A British couple reported missing in Canada were enjoying their holiday unaware of a major search for them.
Newlyweds Ben and Caroline Davies set off on a country camping trip from British Columbia and had not contacted relatives since June 22.
They were due to return to Vancouver on July 4, and were reported missing six days later.
Canadian police in Smithers said: "The couple were apparently enjoying their vacation, unaware that they had been reported missing."
The black pick-up truck they had borrowed from relatives was spotted by an officer in Lillooet, and police confirmed yesterday that the couple were safe.
Sergeant Rob Vermeulen said: "We thank the public, and our many community partners like conservation officers and park rangers, that assisted in looking for this couple and passing along information.
"We are pleased the couple have been located safe and sound and this is the outcome we were all hoping for."
The couple were described as "experienced outdoorsmen" and had been heading towards Alaska when they set off on their trip.
Mr Davies, 37, and his wife, 28, are from near Leintwardine in Herefordshire.
