(NBC News) The American tourist and her guide who were kidnapped last week in Uganda were found safe Sunday, NBC News reports.

Kimberly Sue Endicott of Southern California and her driver were found in Ishasha on the border of Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo, the official told NBC News on Sunday. They are being interviewed by police, the official said. The suspects are still at large.

They had reportedly been held by captors who were demanding $500,000 in ransom.
