A missing Saskatoon woman and her seven-year-old son have been found safe, police say.
Dawn Walker, 48, and her son Vincent Jansen were reported missing on July 24. Her truck and some personal effects were found the next morning at Chief Whitecap Park where she may have been fishing.
Since the discovery, police and volunteers have combed the park and the adjacent South Saskatchewan River for any signs of Walker or Jansen.
In a news release, the Saskatoon Police Department (SPS) said Waker and Jansen were in Oregon City, Oregon around 11:30 a.m. Friday.
“Both would be safe and sound,” SPS said.
“Agency officials are currently working out the details of arranging their return to Canada.”
Walker was located with the help of the US Department of Homeland Security, SPS said.
According to the police, the couple had entered the United States illegally and were found with the help of numerous agencies and the Oregon police.
“US authorities are investigating the implications and any potential action as a result of illegal entry into the United States,” SPS said.
“Dawn Walker will be returned to Saskatoon to meet with investigators. Representatives of U.S. agencies, in consultation with the SPS, are currently working out the details of Vincent Jansen’s return to legal guardianship,” the press release read.
Before she was reported missing, Walker was last seen around 6pm on Friday July 22 at a business in the 300 block of Owen Manor in the Brighton borough, according to police.
