Quebec provincial police say a young woman who went missing last week has been found alive in Saskatchewan.
Police said today passersby contacted authorities after recognizing Karine Major on the street.
Spokesman Claude Doiron says RCMP officers were able to formally identify the 26-year-old and she was brought to a hospital for an evaluation.
He adds it was during her hospital visit that she apparently contacted a family member to tell them she was doing well.
Quebec provincial police investigators are scheduled to meet with Major in Saskatchewan later today to learn more about how she ended up in that province.
Police are not able to say if the woman travelled to the province on her own or where she was found.
Major lives in Rimouski, 300 kilometres northeast of Quebec City.
