Police said no further details would be released.

Da Silva's friends and family, who urged residents in several southwestern Ontario counties to leave their porch lights on to support the search, were thrilled she had been found and was safe.

“I am so happy! Jenny was found safe and sound!” Steph Vandeven, a longtime friend of Da Silva, posted on social media. “Thank you all for everything you did to help bring Jenny home safely!”

“We are incredibly grateful for all of your support, prayers and efforts to help us find Jenny. We are relieved and excited to announce this. “She has been found safe and sound. In the meantime, our family asks that we come together and support each other,” a family member posted.

Da Silva, a funeral director, finished work at a Woodstock funeral home around 3 p.m. on July 5.

Security cameras captured her leaving the parking lot in her vehicle. Da Silva texted one of his two daughters about 15 minutes later near Burford, but she never returned home.

Brantford police issued a news release about Da Silva's disappearance on Monday and appealed to the public to help find her. Friends knocked on doors along Da Silva's usual route between Woodstock and Brantford, and raised awareness through posters and social media.
