KALISPELL, Mont. -

Flathead County authorities say two paddleboarders who were reported missing on Flathead Lake are safe.
    
Witnesses on the shore at Lakeside reported seeing two people on stand-up paddleboards blown toward the middle of the lake when the wind kicked up Monday afternoon.
    
Sheriff's officials searched the lake Monday but turned up no sign of the paddleboarders. Sheriff Chuck Curry acknowledged at the time they might have reached shore elsewhere.
    
The county emergency communications center later released a brief statement saying the two had made it off the lake and they are safe and sound.
    
The statement did not provide any other details.
