Missing Moncton woman found alive

Police arrest man in connection with Donna O’Rielly’s disappearance

Donna O’Rielly has been found alive nearly a month after vanishing outside of the mall where she was working in Moncton, New Brunswick. Police have arrested a 62-year-old man in connection with the case. “She got away on her own when the guy went out for some reason. She got out of the house, went out on the road and flagged down a Purolator truck. And from there the guy took her right to the cop station, from there cops took it over,” said O’Rielly’s brother, Austin Lawrence. O’Rielly’s family has maintained throughout the ordeal that she was abducted, although police treated their investigation as a missing persons case.
