Mariana Cracogna found alive as suspect detained
Cracogna, 26, was found Sunday night and is currently being assessed in hospital
Mariana Cracogna, the Saskatoon woman who went missing Friday after what investigators believe was an armed abduction, has been found, police said Sunday night.
According to Staff Sgt. Kirby Harmon with the Saskatoon Police Service, Cracogna is currently at an area hospital being assessed and treated for any injuries after being found shortly after 8:30 p.m. CT.
The details of her release or possible escape from her alleged abductor, Clinton McLaughlin, are not known at this time.
McLaughlin, 36, was reportedly taken into custody by police shortly before 1 a.m. CT as he lay on the side of the Yellowhead Highway outside of Saskatoon, the StarPhoenix news paper published overnight Monday.
The details of his capture were not immediately clear, but McLaughlin was considered to be armed and dangerous by police as they searched for him.
Cracogna, 26, had been missing since last Friday afternoon.
Earlier Sunday evening, the pickup truck used in the possible abduction was recovered in a rural area east of Saskatoon.
The pickup truck is currently being processed by Saskatoon Police Forensic Identification Unit.
Cracogna's brother Pablo Cracogna — who reported her missing to police two days ago — told CBC News that his sister may have recently ended a relationship with McLaughlin.
