BILLINGS -

A spokesperson for the Park County Sheriff's Department says the couple from Wisconsin has been found.

The spokesperson says they were found on 212 near the Long Lake area.  The couple was driving the Beartooth  Highway when they drove past the road closed signs and got stuck.  The couple did have water, some food and fuel and so no medical attention was needed.  A rancher found them in that area.

Now according to authorities, Mark and Kristine Wathke of Cornell, Wisconsin left the northeast entrance of Yellowstone National Park on Tuesday at 4 PM.

The couple had hotel reservations in Miles City for Tuesday night, but never showed.

We will have more details on the story as they become available.
