SITKA, Alaska (AP) - A search for a California couple whose Sitka bed-and-breakfast host reported them missing came to a happy end when police discovered the couple had been at the circus.

The Daily Sitka Sentinel reports ( ) Sitka Fire Department search and rescue Capt. Lance Ewers says the couple was last seen by their B&B host Tuesday morning when they left for a hike. By Wednesday evening, the host was worried and called police.

Ewers says searchers entered the couple’s room at the B&B and discovered a cell phone. When they called the last number in the phone’s log, the husband picked up.

Ewers says the couple had been at the circus at Moller Field and hadn’t been lost at all. They just hadn’t seen their B&B host since returning from their hike.
