They were on a flight from Penticton to Edmonton when their light plane vanished.

A nine-day search at the time failed to find them.

A team from the Revelstoke detachment, the RCMP Integrated Identification Section, and Parks Canada reached the site about 60 kilometres east of Revelstoke in Glacier National Park Tuesday at noon.
