CRISP POINT, Mich. (AP) – Two sisters from Oklahoma and Nebraska missing for nearly two weeks in Michigan have been found alive in the Upper Peninsula.

State police Sgt. Brent Rosten describes Leslie Roy and Lee Marie Wright as a “little weak” but “alive and well.”

Police say their vehicle became stuck near Crisp Point on Lake Superior, in a remote area of Luce County. There is a lighthouse there. The sisters stayed with the vehicle, which was spotted Friday by a helicopter.

Roy and Wright have been missing since April 11 when they checked out of a motel in Ishpeming after visiting relatives. They had planned to spend that night in Mackinaw City, a three-hour drive to Michigan’s Lower Peninsula.

Roy is from Valley, Nebraska, and Wright lives in Depew, Oklahoma.
