Missing mom found alive after 50 years in Canada

  • An Alaskan woman who had been presumed dead after her disappearance in British Columbia over 50 years ago has been found alive in the Yukon. The Surrey Leader reported that the woman had actually not been seen since 1961 but was reported missing only in 1965. Reports say that her disappearance had been regarded as a homicide and that her husband was a suspect but never arrested. 

    The case was highlighted by the Royal Canadian Police in June and the woman's daughter had begun to investigate leads on the Internet. 

    Surry RCMP spokesman Cpt Bert Paquet said that they received a phone call from a woman in the Yukon who had information about the woman. "She had seen the picture of the missing person in the free newspapers, and said that the missing person we were looking for was actually her mother," he said as reported by Fox News. 

    Paquet said that the 77-year-old woman had been living with another family in Yukon. Her daughter, Evans has a lot of questions, she said. "And they're all "Whys?" Evans said that she has no hard feelings for her mother and that she wants to give her a big hug.
