A Tennessee couple who vanished more than a week ago while hiking in Alaska were found safe Friday — just two miles from their parked car, family said.
Couple Jonas Bare, 50, and Cynthia Hovsepian, 37, were spotted by a hiker as they wandered through the woods in Fairbanks, a city with a population of more than 30,000.
The pair had survived eight days in the wilderness after losing their way on what was supposed to be a brief hike on an established trail, Bare’s uncle, who asked to remain anonymous, told The Post.
The family member said he believes Bare and Hovsepian became dazed and confused by the 20 hours of sunlight per day in the state this time of year, paired with temperatures that can drop to 45 degrees during the four hours of twilight.
“They were lost, I’m sure, and disoriented or else they would have been out of there,” he said. (Read more from “Missing Tennessee Couple Found After 8 Days in Alaskan Wilderness — Just 2 Miles From Car” HERE)
