A SCOTTISH woman has revealed how she was reported missing by her mum while she fast asleep upstairs in bed.
Shannon Watson, from Clydebank in West Dunbartonshire, was stunned when she woke up on last Friday and found a police van at her door.
The 21-year-old’s mum had reported her missing on New Year’s Eve after she believed her daughter had failed to come home.
In fact, Shannon was just tucked up in bed at a “reasonable time” following some heavy celebrations, completely oblivious to her mum’s panic.
A tickled Shannon shared the whole escapade on Twitter yesterday [3 JAN], posting a picture of the police at her door and saying:
“Still can’t believe that on New Year’s Eve because I was home in bed for a reasonable time, I woke up to being reported missing, a missing persons post all over Facebook and the police at my door.
“Does my family get the most over dramatic people award yet ?”
She also shared a text exchange with her mum after Tracey’s alarm had subsided.
Tracey writes: “What a whole ruckus and heartache. Thinking you were dead was it for me, I prayed.
“Even asked Jaz how do I pray. He couldn’t even speak either, was breaking his heart.”
Tracey followed this, texting: “Honestly when they phoned me asking questions about you I just threw my phone and knew you were dead, couldn’t breathe or even stand my legs just buckled.”
To which Shannon hilariously replies: “Mum, I’m not dead.”
Since tweeting, Shannon’s post has been liked more than 1,000 times and has left Twitter users in fits of laughter.

@marcmrrsn13 posted: “Hahahaha she asked how to pray man howling, that’s a sin.”
@jamieleedanielx commented: “Naw this is the best thing I’ve saw “Knew you were dead.”
Shannon has since elaborated on what happened when she woke up, tweeting: “I woke up still steaming.
“Didn’t have a clue wit was going on and wrote in the family group chat saying I’m alive but I’m dead they were not amused”
