Missing elderly Alhambra couple located at Lake Arrowhead *Updated

An elderly Alhambra couple that was reported missing has been located, Alhambra Police are reporting.

"We are very happy to report Amado and Micaela Avila are well and have returned home safe and sound," Alhambra Police Department Officer Sharon Frasca-Williams wrote in an e-mail to Neighborhood Watch participants. "I am sure their loved ones are giving them an earfull."

CBS2 News is reporting that the couple, both in thir 90s, were missing for two nights until they were found disoriented at Lake Arrowhead, a place where their daughter Cindy said they often visited when she was growing up. They drove in their Nissan, which they usually take on Wednesdays to shop at Costco in Alhambra.

“Dad is wondering how they even got up here,” the couple's daughter, Cindy Avila, told CBS2. They were last seen on Wednesday on a surveillance video at a gas station in West LA and were located by someone who saw their story on television. “Thank God for the media,” Cindy said. ”We were worried sick about them.”

They were last seen around 9:30 p.m. when they contacted Bell Gardens police asking for directions. Police located the couple two days later unharmed in San Diego.
