Woman missing from Metro Vancouver treatment centre found safe


A 46-year-old woman reported missing Sunday from a treatment facility was located safe and sound Monday.

The woman has been receiving treatment at the Rehabilitation and Recovery Program operated by Coast Mental Health and overseen by the Provincial Health Services Authority, and did not return on time Sunday as stipulated by her day pass.

Coquitlam RCMP had previously released incorrect information about the patient, including linking her to a criminal psychiatric facility, and indicating she was potentially dangerous. Our publication had previously published her name and photo; we have since removed both from our site.

The Coquitlam RCMP extend their thanks to media and public for getting the word out about the case.
