The Missing Children Society of Canada (MCSC) is issuing an update to inform the community that Cherilyn Oram has been found as of last Friday.

The organization had previously released a Child Search Alert on July 7th with an urgent appeal for help in locating the 13 year old girl who had gone missing in Calgary a few days before.

"Thanks to the support and cooperation from the community, Cherilyn has been located and brought to safety," said Wendy Christensen, Manager of the Investigation Unit at MCSC.

"I have received many phone calls from Cherilyn's family, and they are very appreciative and thankful for our support in helping them through a very difficult time and for our efforts in trying to locate Cherilyn."

"I would also like to commend the Calgary Police Service for their hard work and efforts in locating Cherilyn," continued Christensen.

Every year, over 50,000 children are reported missing in Canada. MCSC is the only non-profit organization in Canada that actively searches for missing children. For more information, visit MCSC online at www.mcsc.ca.
