A family in Canada is happy to be reunited with their loved one who went missing 9 months ago.

39-year-old Shannon Mary Sullivan worked in pharmacology in Toronto before she went missing.

One day after work, Shannon did not return home. Her family was very worried about her as they found her belongings and cell phone in her condo in New Brunswick.

Around the time of her disappearance, Shannon indicated to family members that she was fearful for her financial security.

She also said that she believed her electronic devices had been hacked.

Her brother Terence and other family members launched a search for her. The family also set up the “Find Shannon Mary Sullivan” Facebook page and asked people to be on the lookout for her.

Terence said that the family received a few tips, including one from a Canadian traveler who believed that he spotted her in Sullivan, France.

Terence flew to France, where he spoke to police and handed out flyers. He stayed in the county for 20 days but he had no luck in locating his sister.

However, his actions caused the word to spread and soon Shannon was found by police. Her brother went to pick her up, and together, they flew back to Canada.

Terence posted a photo to Facebook of himself reuniting with his sister.

Terence said that Shannon has not yet disclosed the reason for disappearing without a trace, but she claimed she had no idea her family was searching for her.

“If and when the day arrives that Shannon chooses to share her story publicly, it will be with our family’s full support. However, until that time, we request that you respect Shannon’s privacy upon her return to Canada,” he wrote on Facebook.
