Missing special needs woman found

A 21-year-old special needs woman who went missing near a lake in the suburbs of Vancouver has been found.

Coquitlam Search and rescue Manager Dwight Yochim says Joy Zhang was found dehydrated, but safe and "talking up a storm."

Zhang disappeared near Sasamat Lake northeast of Vancouver Thursday after being separated from a group she was on a day excursion with.

The area around Sasamat Lake is a mixture of thick forest and steep inclines, but has homes around it as well.

Police said Zhang has the mental capacity of a 10-year-old.

This weekend search and rescue teams had her family and friends calling out her name and singing her favourite song, in a bid to coax her out.
