Police say they made their way to a road and a passerby brought them to a gas station in Bragg Creek about 6:30 this evening.

EMS picked them up and they are being treated for mild hypothermia.

The two had been travelling in a black 2007 MaxdaCX7 with Alberta plate WRY955. There is no word yet on if the vehicle has been recovered.

Police had put out an alert about the couple earlier in the day because they were concerned about their welfare given the weather conditions.
