Days after an American couple and their two young children were reported missing after an apparent pirate attack on the Amazon River, they have been found safe, according to the Associated Press.

Adam and Emily Harteau and their daughters, Colette and Sierra, who suffered only some scratches and bug bites, were located Wednesday and taken for medical evaluations to a hospital in Breves, a municipality in the Brazilian state of Para, according to news reports. It is still not clear how the family escaped from armed thieves who police said boarded the barge on which the Harteaus were traveling and held passengers at gunpoint, stealing their personal belongings, according to the AP.

Colby Guillory, a spokesman for the family, told the AP that when he heard the Harteaus were safe, he started “super excited ugly-crying.”

“We just can’t wait to have them home,” he said.

Guillory told the news agency that family and friends believe the Harteaus, from California, escaped from the boat and hid in Brazil's jungle.

“Me knowing Adam, he probably took it upon himself to save his family,” he said. “We just know that sometime between pirates overtaking the boat and leaving the boat, [the Harteaus] went missing.

“We think they jumped.”

Emily Harteau’s father, Warren Brandle, told the Wall Street Journal that his daughter last contacted him Friday, telling him in a Skype message that she and her family were planning to board a boat Saturday in Belem, a port city that leads to the Amazon. They were headed for Macapa, Brandle told the newspaper, but they never made it.

The Wall Street Journal reported:

They planned to travel about 36 hours upriver to the city of Macapá, Mr. Brandle said. But around 7 p.m. local time on Sunday, the barge was allegedly attacked near Breves by pirates, who brought the vessel and accompanying tugboat to an area known as Porto dos Dias, according to a statement from the Pará state police, citing eyewitness reports. There, the attackers took goods off the barge and abandoned the vessels, leaving the passengers and crew stranded, police said.
Upon arriving at the scene, the police said the Harteaus were no longer on the boat.

After the news Wednesday that the Harteaus had been found, Brandle told the newspaper that he had seen reports speculating that they had jumped into the river and used surfboards to get to safety.

“It’s just overpoweringly incredible,” Brandle told the Wall Street Journal about hearing that the family had been found. “I’m still in tears.”

We've asked Amazon whether or not there will be an Android version and will let you know what it says. Don't count on it showing up in the very near future, though. AR View revolves around Apple's ARKit, and Amazon would have to switch frameworks (say, to ARCore) to bring the feature to Android devices.

It appears the Harteau family's world travels began in October 2012.

The Harteaus appear to have been documenting their adventures on a blog titled “Our Open Road,” posting photos of the family in a Volkswagen Westfalia Camper and writing that they “decided to embrace a future unknown and the rewards of slow travel” and are “enjoying life on the slow road, with no end in sight.”

But Adam Harteau’s brother, Keith Harteau, told the AP that the couple and their daughters were preparing to make their way back to the West Coast later this month to be closer to family.

Adam Harteau, from Juniper Hills, Calif., and Emily, from Sacramento, had been living in Florianopolis, a popular resort area in southern Brazil, he said.

How an American Family Escaped Pirates in the Amazon .
The Harteaus swam a river and bushwhacked through a jungle teeming with predators to get their two daughters, 6-year-old Colette and 3-year-old Sierra, to safety. A ferryman later plucked the family from a river in Pará state in the Brazilian Amazon. They had spent the previous three days hiding in the jungle after pirates in a wooden canoe ambushed the barge carrying them upriver on their return journey to California.“They were very, very scared, hungry and covered by insect bites,” said Dinei dos Santos, the boat’s manager, who spotted them signaling for help.
