The couple had been reported missing to police in Montreal on Monday, when they failed to return home from what was thought to have been a ski trip to the resort town of Banff, Alberta, located about 140 km (90 miles) east of Golden.

Word of Montreal's missing persons report did not reach police in Golden until after the couple had already been located, Linteau said.
