BIDDEFORD, Maine (AP) - The Coast Guard says two Maine kayakers reported missing have been located on shore.

The Coast Guard says it was notified by Biddeford police early Wednesday of a report of two people who disappeared at the mouth of the Saco River, near the University of New England campus.

The Guard Coast, the Saco Fire Department and the Maine Marine Patrol used boats and helicopters as part of the search.

Lt. David Bourbeau, a Coast Guard spokesman, says it turned out that the two students were safe on the mainland. He says that through the media outreach, the two learned that the searchers were looking for them.
