Three hunters from the Shuswap area who were reported missing in Northern B.C. are safe.

The RCMP has confirmed Tuesday morning that the three men were located in the Tsay Keh Dene area.

Anglemont resident Enrico Marosi, 34, was granted a draw for a grizzly in the Omineca 7-38 Wildlife Management Unit near Mackenzie.

He left on a hunt with fellow North Shuswap residents Marcus Glass, 45, and Thomas Glass, 42, on May 11.

The three men were expected to return home on May 20, but when Marosi failed to show up at work last week, one employee at his construction company in Salmon Arm alerted police.

It turns out the men had asked another hunter to tell their families they would be returning late, but the message wasn’t passed along.

The management unit covers a large area of forest and the exact location of where the hunters were going to be was not known.

A search and rescue operation was underway when the men were located.

RCMP noted all three were experienced outdoorsmen.
