HEBER SPRINGS, AR (KAIT) - Police in Heber Springs tell Region 8 News that a missing couple traveling from Missouri have been found safe.

The couple was traveling from O'Fallon, Illinois after visiting their grandson.

Police say the couple, in their 80's, were thought to be in the Blytheville area because their grandson had lived there 20 years ago. Police say the couple may have gotten confused and disoriented, mistakenly traveling to Region 8. Blytheville is about four hours away from O'Fallon.
