A large-scale emergency response was launched in Dargate, near Whitstable, after a mother and son got lost on marshes.
Police, ambulances and fire engines were called to help search the land behind the BP garage on the A299 Thanet Way in the early hours.
The pair were rescued after losing their way. It is thought they had tried to take a shortcut home.
The coastguard helicopter was seen hovering overhead after being launched from Lydd airport just after 7am.
Specialist rescue teams were also thought to be involved, with a search boat and off-road emergency vehicles spotted at the scene.
A police spokesman said: "Kent Police was called at 5.23am on Monday 20 November following concerns for the welfare of a woman and a man near the Thanet Way in Faversham.
"Officers attended the scene alongside Kent Fire and Rescue Service and the South East Coast Ambulance Service.
