A Quebec woman reported missing and later found alive in Saskatchewan has been arrested for suspected mischief.

Police said their latest information suggests the 26-year-old was not the victim of a crime or kidnapping.

They said she left Quebec for personal reasons and was arrested for allegedly making a false declaration to police officers who met her in Saskatchewan.

She was sent to hospital for an evaluation but has since been released.

Her file has been transferred to the Crown’s office.
