Missing pair found

View of Great Lake

There's a happy ending in the search for two men who went missing in the Great Lake area on Sunday.

There were concerns for a 94-year-old and his 70-year-old companion after they went to Great Lake around lunchtime.

They never returned home to Devonport, prompting police to issue a description of their vehicle early on Monday morning.

The Westpac Rescue Helicopter was in the skies overnight searching for the men, with both found alive and well - although cold - before being flown home.

Police say the car had broken down at Ponderosa but they'd made the right decision to stay with it. 

They were seen while flashing their lights after hearing the chopper overhead.
