A mother and daughter reported missing from North Carolina were located Wednesday in St. Clair.
Megan Stack, 33, and her 8-year-old daughter, Ava, were reported missing Monday from their home south of Charlotte, N.C.
According to St. Clair Police Chief Bill Hammack, officers were dispatched to the St. Clair Ambulance District building, located off Paul Parks Drive, Wednesday at 7:51 a.m. in response to a patient “acting hysterical.”
They were at the ambulance building because Megan Stack said her daughter was not feeling well, Hammack said.
“The mother was acting irrational and appeared to be delusional,” he told The Missourian.
St. Clair police ran the license plate number from Megan Stack’s vehicle through the department’s computer system. From the computer search, a notification read that the woman and her daughter were reported missing from the Charlotte area.
Hammack said Megan Stack agreed to be transferred to the psychiatric unit at St. Anthony’s Hospital in St. Louis. Stack and her daughter were transported by EMS to the psychiatric unit and arrangements were made for social services to help once they arrived at the hospital.
They had been missing since Monday, Dec. 4, according to Hammack.
According to the Charlotte Observer, Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said, “Authorities are working now to reunite Ava with other family members.”
St. Clair is more than 700 miles from Charlotte.
