The Marin County Sheriff’s office tweeted that two helicopter crews airlifted Carol Kiparsky and Ian Irwin to a hospital Saturday.

Authorities did not immediately provide details on their conditions and where they were located.

The couple was last seen Feb. 14 at a vacation cottage near Inverness.
Authorities combed the area for days and shifted to a “recovery mission” Thursday when they felt they had exhausted all possible leads.
