A Winnipeg mother is returning home without her daughter after a winter vacation ended in tragedy less than a day into their planned week-long holiday.

Holly Twoheart and her daughter Danielle Twoheart, 26, left Winnipeg for an all-inclusive hotel in the Dominican Republic Thursday.

Holly says she went to bed around 2 a.m that first night, but Danielle decided to stay up.
