Two elderly travellers from Ontario, who were reported missing on Thursday morning when they hadn't arrived at their New Brunswick destination, have been found safe, say RCMP.

"​The RCMP would like to thank the public for their assistance," Sgt. Renée Labbé stated in a news release on Thursday afternoon.

The 88-year-old man and 91-year-old woman from Scarborough, Ont., were last seen on Wednesday at 8 a.m. leaving the Super 8 hotel in Campbellton.

The two were driving to Forest City, which is near the Canada-U.S. border, northwest of McAdam.

Campbellton and Forest City are 357 kilometres apart, with the most direct route having an estimated driving time of about four hours.
