PASCO, Florida -- A missing elderly couple from Zephyrhills has been found in Jacksonville.

The Pasco County Sheriff's Office says Joan and Marvin Stump left to pick up their son at the St. Pete/Clearwater Airport Friday, but never arrived and never returned home.

A St. Petersburg Police officer reportedly stopped them Friday evening near 5th Ave. and Beach Drive, where they asked the officer for directions to the airport.

The missing couple reportedly drove all night and ended up in the Jacksonville area. Local authorities there recognized their car after they were involved in a minor traffic accident.

The Stumps are both on heart medication. They were taken to a Jacksonville hospital for observation.

Their son, who flew in from Indiana, will pick up his parents in Jacksonville.
