Hundreds of people helped search for the couple. "Their family had given up hope", according to the Mercury News.

Search and rescue teams, as well as volunteers, went out looking for the couple.

"This is a miracle", Marin County Sheriff's Sgt. Brenton Schneider told reporters. And I say, "they found them and they are alive!" Then came the song.

"My dad is very scratched", said Jonas Irwin. "'Carol and Ian, ' [they replied]".

The couple was using light clothes, no coats as well as Carol Kiparsky was found without footwear.

The couple survived off of a puddle of water they found nearby and was helped by relatively mild weather for most of the week. Even they, it seemed, feared the worst was coming. Temperatures dropped into the 30s in recent days, dimming the prospects for survival, Sgt Schneider said.

"We were breaking through the bushes", Webster said at a news conference.

When they were near the drainage ravine, they heard a faint voice call out, "hello?" and the group thought it was a fellow searcher or property owner. I hope he is still alive in the next generation, "he said".

But the couple hung on.

The brush was so thick in the region that the few have been identified that rescuers experienced to crawl to arrive at them. When they were finally found, the helicopter became the only way to get the couple out. Kiparsky and Irwin were hospitalized for hypothermia. They moved, tried to reach a road, tried to reach the water, believed that the water led them to civilization.

Webster and Cassens - who spent a half hour with the couple before they were airlifted out - and Michael St. John, the unit leader of the volunteers, who spoke with the couple Saturday night at MarinHealth Medical Center, recounted what it took to bring the couple home.

They were released from hospital yesterday.

Irwin is the main Parkinson's infection specialist. Kiparsky is a prominent linguist who has published several books, including "Fact" in 1968 and "The Gooficon: A Repair Manual for English" in 1975.

Kiparsky, 77, and Irwin, 72, were last seen on Friday, Feb. 14 at a rental house on Via de La Vista in the Sea Haven neighborhood of Inverness, an unincorporated community surrounded by Point Reyes National Seashore in western Marin County.

The search plan for Saturday included ground searchers, K-9 teams, boats, an airplane and drones.

On Thursday, rescue efforts shifted to a recovery effort to find the Palo Alto couple's bodies, ABC News reported. Jon Kiparsky, the hikers' other son, said.
