Police north of Montreal say missing teen girl has been found safe and sound

Laval police say a teenage girl reported missing last week by her family has been found safe and sound.

LAVAL, Que. — Laval police say a teenage girl reported missing last week by her family has been found safe and sound.

Sarah Hauptman disappeared last week from her parents’ home in Laval and was among a handful of teenage girls who went missing last week that attended an area group home.

Authorities have said there were concerns the girls were being targeted by sex-trade recruiters working with criminal gangs.

Police say these groups prey on vulnerable youth through social media, through their peers or by frequenting areas they are known to attend.

Of the four cases publicized by Laval police last week, a spokesman says today that all have now been found.

Hauptman was found overnight by police, is in good health and was questioned by authorities.

Quebec Public Security Minister Martin Coiteux said last week that addressing the problem of youth exploitation is a priority for the provincial government.
