A missing woman whose family has for days been pleading for her safe return was found safe on Christmas Day, Toronto police say.
Cheyanna Cooper, 24, was last seen at a youth shelter in the area of Caledonia Road and Eglinton Avenue West on Dec. 13. She was dressed properly and was staying at the shelter at the time.
“Usually every Christmas Eve we bake cookies and read ‘The night before Christmas,’” Grizzly told reporters at 13 Division Sunday afternoon. “She loves Christmas, she loves singing Christmas carols.”
On Monday, Grizzly emailed reporters and said police were notified Cooper had returned to a Toronto shelter on Christmas and that she was doing well.
Grizzly thanked all those who helped look for her missing daughter.
“The family thanks the detectives at the 13 division, all the officers of the Toronto police force, all the news media, and everyone who helped search, posted flyers, called in tips, shared on social media and prayed,” Grizzly wrote.
“Thank you all. The power of people coming together has helped make this Christmas a beautiful one. Thank you everyone, we will be forever grateful for all your help.”
