A mother and daughter who went missing from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg area have been found safe.

The post reads, "Megan Stack and her 8-year-old daughter, Ava, are safe!" Charlotte-Mecklenburg police told WSOC-TV that Megan Stack and her daughter Ava were found in Franklin County, Missouri, near St. Louis after Stack apparently voluntarily stopped at an emergency medical services substation.

Stack was last seen Monday leaving her home on Cloister Drive at about 1:30 p.m.

Charlotte police say Megan Stack, and her daughter Ava, were last seen Monday as the mother picked up this child from school.

But by early Tuesday afternoon, the eastern boundary of the evacuation area had been expanded to the Haynes Canyon area. Both were closed for the day, as was Santa Monica College and all schools in the Santa Monica-Malibu school district.

Authorities say they are concerned about their safety due to Megan's emotional state, which they did not elaborate on.

Police shared the news on social media Wednesday.

On behalf of the Lybarger family, I would ask that everyone respect their privacy at this time as they recover after a hard couple of days.
