Local RCMP are not longer considering Jessica Janis Webber missing after the 16-year-old girl from Hope attended the Lethbridge detachment in Alberta on Tuesday.

Webber was last seen at her home on July 8 at 5 a.m. and police believe she travelled east by hitching rides with long-haul truck drivers.

The RCMP confirmed Webber attended a friends home in Wetaskiwin, Alberta on July 9. She has family and friends in Hay River and Lethbridge, however there was no indication at the time that she has been to either city. Webber contacted a friend in Campbell River, B.C. on July 17 and advised the friend she was in Alberta. However, Webber’s family has not heard from her since she went missing.
