The mother of an 18-year-old Cree woman from northern Quebec who went missing in Montreal is giving thanks now that her daughter has been found.

Cynthia Neeposh said she was worried for her daughter Lynn Iserhoff’s safety after receiving some troubling phone calls.

Iserhoff was last seen on Dec. 21 before turning up on Wednesday.

“Her voice sounded trembling and she said 'Mom, I only have a few minutes to talk' and that's when I was suspicious about what she was saying, that there was fear and I felt like somebody was standing there,” Neeposh told CBC.

Neeposh decided to take time off work, and and flew to Montreal from Mistissini to find her.

Alan Gull, with the Native Friendship Centre of Montreal, helped track her down.

Gull said he had a lead that Iserhoff might be in the hands of known criminals.

“I know that these people are highly involved with drug trafficking,” he said.

“You're talking about forcing somebody to do something out of their will. You're talking about forcing somebody to prostitute themselves for human trafficking.”

Finally, on Wednesday night, walked in to a police station in NDG. Police said she appears to be in good health. 

Neeposh said she had trust in God came through, but her daughter's ordeal is not over.

“She's hurt a lot,” she said. “Deep down. That I know. She says that she got beaten up sometimes.”
