PERRY, Utah - Authorities in Utah have found a family of five missing in the vicinity of a wildfire.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports that all five are fine. Box Elder County Sheriff's search and rescue team located the family at about 11:30 a.m. Wednesday.

They were found in a rugged, remote area near Perry Canyon, about 55 miles north of Salt Lake City.

The family includes a mother, father and three children, two who are 12 and one who is 13.

Officials launched a search Tuesday night after a relative reported them missing when they didn't return Tuesday afternoon from a camping trip. Crews used infrared cameras to scan for the family overnight.

There was a small wildfire in the area where they were found.
