An elderly Florida couple thought to be missing in a 39-foot Fleetwood Providence motorhome were found Friday (May 28) at an old gold-mining camp near Congress, Ariz.
“It’s an area where there was no cell-phone reception,” said Neal Allen of New Port Richie, Fla., a friend of the couple, Alvin J. Kemmet Sr., 69, and Gertrude H. Reed, 77. “They thought they had communicated with friends that they were going to be out of touch for a couple of weeks.”
The pair were reported missing May 23 by Kemmet’s son, Alvin J. Kemmet Jr., after they hadn’t been heard from for 10 days.
“Last night I talked to a friend of Al’s who was collecting his mail and forwarding it to an address in Congress,” Allen said.
Arizona police early this morning (May 28) drove to the mining camp, where they found the motorhome, and advised the couple to contact relatives.
“We have a very happy ending,” Allen said.
