The company added, “Alex, we’re on a mission to #GiveHerTheQ3. Is there anything you could do to help us find Charlene?”

Audi USA late wrote, “There’s no community like the Audi community. With your help, we tracked down Charlene! More to come as we help #GiveHerTheQ3.”

“In the spirit of the holidays, we are thrilled to gift Charlene with an all-new Audi Q3,” Tara Rush, Audi of America’s chief marketing officer told E!
