MIAMI, April 5 (UPI) -- An Ohio family reported missing in Florida's Everglades was found safe Friday, authorities said.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue officials said the Medina County family -- Scott Schreck, 44, Carie, 42, and sons Drew, 9, Luke, 7, and Zane, who is between 3 and 4 -- were unharmed when rescuers reached them, WFOR-TV, Miami, reported.

Florida Fish and Wildlife officials said the extensive search for the Schrecks started when the family failed to return from an airboat excursion Thursday afternoon, the TV station said.

The search involved helicopters, airplanes and at least a half-dozen airboats, as rescuers covered 1,000 square miles of territory.
