Missing family in Idaho found

[Updated at 12:38 p.m.] Five family members who had been missing in northern Idaho were found safe on Monday morning, a police spokeswoman in Coeur d'Alene said.

Their car apparently got stuck on a dirt road in the woods, she said.

[Posted at 12:16 p.m.] Search crews in Idaho were looking Monday for an elderly couple and their three grandchildren, who have been missing for a day.

Neil and Connie Bigelow picked up the three with plans to take them to a lake to skip rocks Sunday afternoon, but they have not been seen since, police in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, said Monday.

Investigators believe the family got lost or had an accident, said Sgt. Christine Wood of the Coeur d'Alene Police Department. They do not believe the disappearance is suspicious, she said.

Authorities are looking for Neil Bigelow, 70, and his 67-year-old wife, Connie, along with the three grandchildren: 5-year-old Gage Morgan, 10-year-old Hunter Morgan and 13-year-old Colton Morgan, police said in a statement.

The children's parents, Jeffrey and Kelly Morgan, believe that their children's grandparents took them for a drive in the woods or to a campground, the statement said. Jeffrey Morgan "suspects that they may have had car trouble or an accident," it said.
