    I feel so much for this woman and her family. I am the same age, same city, and same mental health status. She has gone missing similarly in the past and was found in a thick wooded area by her husband. I hope she is safe this time, too.

    Police say Rebecca McCaffrey, 30, was last seen around 9:45 a.m. last Thursday in the 1100 block of Carling Avenue. The family has told volunteers who are helping look for her that McCaffrey's mental health issues may have contributed to her disappearance.

    "This is day five, and there have been so many people searching, and we haven't found her," said Laura Dorris, McCaffrey's mother.

    "And that's very scary. So the more people who can be out there, the greater the chances are we can find her."

    Laura and Brenden are encouraging people to join the Find Rebecca McCaffrey group on Facebook for more information on how to help with the search efforts.

    The Find Facebook page indicates that the volunteer search has been called off. No updates regarding this aspect seem to be in the media.

    Rebecca McCaffrey went missing on Thursday, Aug. 18 when she left the Royal Ottawa Hosptial to go for a walk and never returned.

    She was being treated at the Royal as an outpatient for depression and anxiety. Her mother, Laura Dorris, says she made tremendous progress in her treatment, and was about to be released the next day-- the day after she disappeared." "She was only there for four or five hours a day, she was making great progress," Dorris says.
    ... Her brother, Brenden Dorris, says she went missing before, about six weeks ago. He says she was seeking isolation in nature, and her family thinks that's what she may be doing this time as well.

    "She loves nature, she loves the outdoors. She knows how to survive outside," Dorris says. "But she left without her wallet, her identification, her credit cards. We're worried about how she's feeding herself, how she's staying warm." He says the last time they found her, she was in a thickly wooded area, under six to 10 feet of brush, and that as a result, the search for her is made that much more difficult.

    On Monday, dozens of volunteers fanned out across Ottawa to search for McCaffrey, whose mental health issues may have contributed to her disappearance, according to her family.
    But after taking part a "strategy session" with the Ottawa Police Service Tuesday morning, organizers announced they were calling off the ground search, and wouldn't be forming any new search parties.
    No reasons were given for the decision to halt the search.

    A 30-year-old Ottawa woman missing since Aug. 18 has been found safe and sound after an extensive community and police search.
    So happy for the many, many people who love her! The community was so supportive and I hope they will continue to send healing vibes to Rebecca and her friends and family.
