Shania Twain is using her star power to help a family find their daughter. The Canadian icon took to social media to raise awareness for Rachael Mattice, 24, who has been missing from a campground in New York's Adirondack Mountains since June 22. One of the young women's friends reached out to the country music star on Instagram asking for her help, as Shania is Rachael's idol.

TAP FOR GALLERYShania Twain took to Twitter for an important cause.

The post by Cynthia Nellis said: “You are Rachael's favourite country artist. She absolutely adores you. Her parents use to call her Shania when she was little because she would sing your music all the time. She had every tape, CD, knows every lyric to every song... I’m reaching out to you in hopes that you can make one of Rachael’s dreams come true by sending a message out to her.'”

The 50-year-old GRAMMY winner went on to share info on the young woman on Twitter, saying she was thinking of the missing brunette, who had taken a job in the Adirondack area as a home health care aide. "I've heard the story of Rachael Mattice & urge anyone with information to come forward to the police and help her return to her family," Shania said on Twitter.

Shania's tweets attracted hundreds of likes and retweets.

In an interview with Fox News, Rachael's mother said the last message she received from her daughter was a text saying she arrived home safely and, "Goodnight and I love you." Her father, David, later drove to her camper and noticed his daughter was missing, though her car was parked safely beside her home.

Since then, police have been busy searching the area with helicopters and dogs for clues into her disappearance.

Shania is urging fans and followers to help find Rachael Mattice.

"It’s not her nature to just take off," Rachael's mother went on to tell the news outlet. "She has no enemies... She's a very loving person."

Anyone with tips in the case is urged to contact the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office at (518) 548-3113.
