(KSL News) Update: An elderly couple missing since Saturday has been found.

The couple went for a drive into western Juab County late last week and didn't return as planned on Saturday.

Sterling and Lauralee Ercanbrack were last seen driving toward the appropriately named Confusion Mountains.

This morning their vehicle was spotted. It was stuck in a place called Coyote Springs.

We spoke late this morning with Ed Alder, principal of West Deseret High School. He says the Ercanbracks are doing just fine.

A grandson told KSL they had plenty of food and water and that they just stayed with their vehicle until help arrived.


This morning Juab County authorities are looking for an elderly couple missing in the west desert.

Relatives of Keith and Laura Ercanbrack tell us the couple left Thursday for the desert. They were supposed to return home Saturday morning.

When they didn't show up for church Sunday, the couple's family knew something was wrong.

We contacted the Juab County Sheriff's Department overnight. All they could tell us is they've been looking for an elderly couple since Sunday afternoon, and that they haven't found any sign of them.
