Police in Victoria say a missing 8-month pregnant woman has been found in Vancouver by police there.

Over social media the force says Magdalena Botea is safe and on her way to get medical help.

Earlier police said they believed Botea may have boarded a ferry bound for the Lower Mainland on Saturday. 

The 32-year-old was last seen at the Swartz Bay ferry terminal just before 2 p.m. PT on Saturday after being reported missing earlier that day.

Originally investigators said she was, "at immediate risk of harm."
