Stephanie Gagnon, a young woman from Fort St. James reported missing in Edmonton was found safe and sound.

The 19-year-old Gagnon had apparently been staying with a friend close to where her mother lived, and was found walking down the street about 10 blocks from her mother’s apartment building.

The security guard who worked at Gagnon’s mother’s apartment building had been keeping an eye out for the young woman and came across her.

He brought her back to her mother’s apartment and she was reunited with her mother Corinne Gagnon and sister Tawny Gagnon.

Stephanie had been aware her family was looking for her, according to her sister.

“We were angry but at the same time very relieved,” said her sister.

By putting the word out on Facebook Stephanie Gagnon was missing, she received calls from all over, including a woman from Tennessee who wanted to contribute money to help with the search.

Stephanie is now reportedly living back home with her mom and plans to stay in Edmonton for the time being.
