Missing since January, U.S. couple found in Peru

An American couple that had gone missing in Peru has been found safe, Peru's Ministry of Tourism and Commerce told CNN Tuesday.

Jamie Neal and Garret Hand, both 25 and from the San Francisco area, left the United States last November and chronicled their trip through South America on social media until last month.

That's when their Internet postings stopped and calls to their cell phones went unanswered. A spokesman for Peru's Ministry of Commerce and Tourism told CNN the couple, located in the Amazon region of Peru, told authorities they had no idea their families considered them missing.
