HOUSTON -- A Houston-area husband and wife who meant to drive a mile to a relative's home but ended up on a two-day journey to Florida have been located unharmed.
The Harris County Sheriff's Office on Tuesday said relatives were heading to Pensacola, Fla., to pick up 78-year-old Salomon Gasca Sr. and 73-year-old Lorenza Gasca. They were located Monday night, lost and confused, at a truck weigh station.
The Gascas were last seen Sunday afternoon in their car, leaving one family gathering in suburban Houston to drive to another relative's nearby place.
The couple told the Florida Highway Patrol that they got lost and drove as far as they could Sunday, spent the night at a gas station parking lot, then drove on Monday until ending up at the weigh station.
