Missing 16 year old found in Yellowknife

The search for 16-year-old Heather Daye and her 26-year-old boyfriend is off after Yellowknife residents helped the RCMP in locating Daye.

The search for 16-year-old Heather Daye and her 26-year-old boyfriend is off after Yellowknife residents helped the RCMP in locating Daye.

“After a number of phone calls yesterday, they discovered they are now in Yellowknife and have been seen by numerous people who have been kind enough to call in so we’re going to be

removing our request to assist us in locating her,” said RCMP spokesperson Sgt. Don Rogers on Wednesday morning.

Daye had travelled from her McAdam, New Brunswick, home to Whitehorse and it was suspected she was missing when her family hadn’t heard from her since July 20.

She hadn’t picked up her paycheque from Whitehorse’s Walmart, according to a wanted ad for Daye on classifieds website Kijiji.

During the search, RCMP believed Daye and her boyfriend Chris MacNeil were living in Whitehorse, possibly in the bush.

Daye is safe, said Rogers.

“It doesn’t look like she’s under any kind of stress, but we’d still like to have an opportunity to speak with her. But the urgency of trying to locate her has diminished based on the

information that we’ve received.”

Investigators have notified her mother Darlene Daye, said Rogers.

“We want to thank the public for their assistance in helping us determine her whereabouts,” he said.
