ELMHURST – An elderly Elmhurst couple reported missing on Saturday have been found, according to Elmhurst Police.

Vernon Schweisthal, 89, and Elaine Schweisthal, 85, both of Elmhurst, were reported missing by family after they failed to appear for a lunch appointment Friday in Mount Prospect.

The couple was found Sunday morning in Bureau County, Illinois, police said, after a passing driver saw the Schweisthal's car pulled off the main road and onto a side road leading into a high corn field.

The driver reported the car to the Bureau County Sheriff's Office, according to police, and a deputy discovered the car was wanted by Elmhurst Police in connection with a missing or endangered person investigation.

The Schweisthal's car wasn't operating and the couple, who were suffering from dehydration, were transported to a nearby hospital.
