An Amber Alert has been issued for an 11-month-old Ottawa infant.
The Ottawa Police Service issued the alert shortly before 4 a.m. Friday for Abby Mathewsie, whom they allege has been abducted. They say she was last seen around 2 a.m. in the area of Carling Avenue and Pinecrest Road.
They describe the child as an Indigenous female, with short black hair, and having a feeding tube attached to her nose and wearing a navy-blue Montreal Canadiens “onesy.”
“The Ottawa Police are treating this missing incident as suspicious,” read the public advisory issued by police.
The Amber Alert originally identified the suspect as a 70-year-old woman, believed to be the child’s grandmother, but Ottawa police now say they do not believe the baby is with her. No further details have been released on who may have taken the baby.
We are asking for assistance in locating 11 month old Abby MATHEWSIE. Indigenous female, short black hair with feeding tube attached to her nose, wearing a navy blue Montreal Canadiens 'onesy". @OttawaPolice
