Red Deer RCMP find woman thought to be ‘in danger,’ no longer need tips from public

After issuing an urgent plea for help from the public Thursday afternoon, police in Red Deer later said two adults and a vehicle had been found and they no longer required assistance.

Initially, in a news release, RCMP said they were trying to locate “an unknown female who police believe may be in danger.”

Just after 2:30 p.m., someone contacted the RCMP to report an argument between a man and a woman outside a vehicle on 55 Street and Thomlison Avenue.

“It is believed that they left that location together in the vehicle and the female may not have left willingly,” police said in a news release.

“At 2:41 p.m., different witnesses reported a similar argument and reported that a male was seen to restrain a female and push her into a vehicle.”

Police were searching for a white vehicle — believed to be either a Dodge Journey or a GMC Acadia — that was last seen heading west on 39 Street.

Just before 7 p.m., RCMP issued an updated news release, saying they were no longer asking the public to help find the woman or vehicle.

“The two adults and vehicle have been located and police continue their investigation into this matter,” police said.

“Red Deer RCMP would like to thank the witnesses who initially called police to report these incidents.”
