UPDATE: B.C. woman and boy, 6, found safe, RCMP confirm

Roseanne Supernault says both she and her six-year-old nephew are fine and she has contacted police

Kamloops RCMP confirmed late Friday that a woman and her six-year-old nephew have been located and are safe.

Roseanne Supernault and her nephew, Nikaeo, were reported missing Sunday after being believed to be missing for three days.

But Supernault took to social media Thursday to say both she and her nephew, Nikaeo Supernault, were safe and have contacted the RCMP.

“Firstly, I sincerely appreciate the public’s concern. I am in awe of your love, prayers, and support. I never intended to bring this personal issue into the public eye. I intended to resolve this privately between the two families involved and authorities,” she stated online.

Supernault said she had been raising her nephew for the past seven months and the police were misinformed that she had been temporarily looking after him. She called on police to investigate allegations of abuse her nephew had brought forward to her, sparking their need to disappear.

RCMP told Black Press Media Friday morning that the investigation would remain active until they properly spoke with the aunt and child.
