I lost my mother

Mom? Where are you? Please come home. Seriously, my mom supposedly got on an airplane to Edmonton this afternoon. My cousin is there looking for her. The plane landed over an hour ago. No sign of Mom. Still waiting to hear.

On the trail

Mom got on the plane in Ottawa. The flight had one stop in Winnipeg and then went on to Edmonton. She did not have to change planes. Apparently, she requested a wheelchair and porter in Winnipeg. We don't know if she thought she had to change planes or if she got off to have a cigarette. Regardless, she did not get back on for the next leg of the flight. We've got the airline and the police tracing her whereabouts. One WestJet employee recalls putting her on a plane to Calgary. If so, it is a delayed flight and the next flight from Calgary to Edmonton is also delayed. It will likely be another three hours at least before we know exactly where she it.
