Missing Americans are safe, says Peru’s tourism minister

Two young Americans missing in Peru have been found safe in a remote part of the country, said Peru’s tourism minister, and were  unaware of all the concern about them.

Family and  friends of Garret Hand and Jamie Neal, of California’s Bay area, had feared for their safety after they’d vanished  for a month (after being in regular contact while traveling in Peru).

Jamie Neal (left) and Garret Hand were contacted by Peruvian authorities.

Peruvian and U.S. authorities were involved in searching for them. See the full story here.
