Nampa Police says the two missing fishermen have been located safe.

Police had been looking for Wade Randall Osterhour, 32, and Larry Lee Brewer, 48, who were last seen traveling in a red 1997 Ford Ranger pickup hauling two catarafts.

Nampa Police says Osterhout and Brewer were in a boat along the Snake River near Celebration Park in Canyon County when their motor quit working and they were stuck with no cellphone reception.

The Civil Air Patrol was able to track the location of the men after one of the phones became active.

They were later found safe and are now back home.
