‘Hopefully, someone will recognize her:’ Family of missing 15-year-old Rockland teen asking for public’s help

The mother of a teen who disappeared from her father’s home in Rockland in late November is pleading for the public’s help in locating her daughter

Victoria Goodenough, 15, disappeared from her father’s home in Rockland on Nov. 29. She disappeared from home on numerous occasions in the past, most recently on Nov. 14, but has always been located before. She is known to frequent downtown Ottawa.

“Please, please come home. We miss her. We love her. We just want to know that she’s safe,” said Victoria’s mother, Audrey Lauzon.

Police and missing persons organizations have been contacted, as have youth services organizations in Ottawa, said Lauzon.

“We have had zero contact. This is the longest she has ever been gone. We have not been been able to get confirmation that she’s OK. We have had zero information so far,” she said.

“‘She had always gone to downtown Ottawa. That’s why we’re reaching out to the media,” said Victoria’s mother, Audrey Lauzon. “It’s Christmas time. She hangs out at the Rideau Centre. There will be so many people at the Rideau Centre. Hopefully, someone will recognize her.”

Victoria, who’s also going by the name “Maeve,” is five feet, four inches tall with a slim build and long black hair. Her nose and ears have been pierced and she has a tattoo of a cross on her hand. She is often seen wearing an earring of the shape of a dangling cross.

She may also be wearing a small black cross-body bag with white lettering, worn slung around on her back.

Victoria has medical conditions which require medication, and she had not been taking them. “We have concerns for her well-being,” said Lauzon. She said her daughter does not have a smart phone, but was carrying a flip phone.

It’s unclear how Victoria travels from the rural east end to downtown Ottawa. She does not use public transit. It’s possible she was hitchhiking and someone picked her up and has more information, said Lauzon.

Anyone with information is asked to call OPP at 1-888-310-1122.
