P0442 code Service Engine Soon light

We've all seen the SES light pop up. This was a first for my mom who's owned hers for close to 3 months now. I have a cheap OBII code reader so I plugged it up and only found one. It was in there 3 times, but still it was the same code repeated.

She said it just popped up there this morning and so when I went and read the code it displayed P0442 1/3 Generic with the description Evaporative Emission System Leak Detected (small leak)

I've seen this before in another vhiche I owned. Typically this meant gas cap leading up to more serious issues.

I went ahead and cleared the code after taking off the gas cap and re-tightening and it didn't come back on.... yet. I told her to keep her eye on it and time will tell.

Can anyone else speak to this code and if so what the fix was?

Thanks for the comments and feedback!
