Two Swiss tourists missing in the remote north of the State have been found after walking for nearly three days when their vehicle became bogged.

Gerald Augsburger, 62, and his wife Lotti, 61, were due to check out of their accommodation on Sunday morning, but failed to arrive.

The Swiss nationals arrived in town on Friday and were driving a hired white Toyota Prado 4WD.

A search began on Sunday.

They were found by two Wyndham residents on the Gibb River Road, about 5km east of the Pentecost River, about 100km from Kununurra.

Police said the pair bogged their 4WD vehicle on the Karunje Track on Saturday and walked along the Pentecost River to the Gibb River Road, which they had started to walk along.

They were taken to the Kununurra Police Station by their rescuers and will now be taken to the Kununurra District Hospital for medical check-ups.
