KAMLOOPS — Two hunters who were considered missing in the Kamloops area since Monday have been located safe and sound. 

Raymond Selinger, 67, and Reid Bacon, 65, set out from Abbotsford on Oct. 10 and were expected to arrive at a friend's cabin in the Kamloops area. 

When the men didn't show up their families grew concerned. 

Selinger's daughter-in-law Dorinda Selinger says the two hunters had gotten lost on their way to the cabin and ended up staying in the Hihium Lake area. 

"Today they came down into Clinton to get cell service, I guess just to check in," Selinger said. "(Ray) had called his wife, my mother-in-law, just to say, 'hey, we're here.' Then she told him, 'the whole country's looking for you.'"

Selinger says it isn't normal for the men not to check in, but there had been no cell service at the cabin where they had been staying.

She adds everyone is relieved to know the men are safe and in good health.
