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

Police say they were found around 9pm Saturday night. Officers say when they found the couple they were disoriented but otherwise okay.

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.

Police said the couple's credit card was swiped in Sikeston, Missouri early Saturday morning.

Police in Missouri, Illinois and Arkansas were notified to be on the lookout for the Lackmans.
