Two men and a woman from Hopedale have been found safe after their boat ran out of gas.

The trio left Hopedale Friday afternoon around 1 p.m. en route to Natuashish in a small open speedboat, but had not shown up at their destination by the next day.

RCMP were notified about the missing boaters shortly after 9 a.m. Saturday morning.

Police said Natuashish and Hopedale ground search and rescue teams were activated. A search and rescue helicopter was also used in the search.

The boaters were located near Davis Inlet around 4:30 p.m. Saturday afternoon.  No one was injured.
