Update: Two missing college students found safe


Two students attending college in Bloomington have been found safe several days after they were reported missing, according to media reports.

Matthew LePage, 22, and Jennifer Winfree, 21, both attend Bethany Global University. They had not been in contact with friends or family since Saturday, when they were at a bonfire in Savage.

They left together around midnight, according to the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA), and hadn't been heard from since then.

FOX 9 reports they have been located and are safe. A spokeswoman from the school told the station that Winfree contacted her mother and they are on their way back to campus.

No other information has been released so far on their whereabouts since Saturday, according to KSTP.
