Selkirk RCMP are seeking the public’s assistance locating 18-month-old Seaira Neveah Hunter and her mother Rebecca Mikalosh.
Police say Mikalosh, 36, failed to attend a scheduled visit with the girl’s father and that she doesn’t have the authority to take the girl outside her local area.
Police spoke to Mikalosh on Wednesday morning, when she confirmed that she had Seaira and that they were both doing well. Further contact was made that night with a family member, however, in both instances, she declined to meet with RCMP.
"We are asking for Rebecca to contact us so that we can confirm that Seaira is doing well" RCMP Chief Superintendent Mark Fisher said. "We are also asking anyone who may have seen or been with Rebecca and Seaira to contact their local police immediately. "
Police believe Mikalosh is travelling west in a grey 2001 Ford Taurus with Manitoba licence plate GVD 275. They may be in western Saskatchewan (North Battleford/Saskatoon area) or Alberta, according to police.
A Canada-wide warrant has been issued for Mikalosh for the abduction of a child under 14 years old.
Mikalosh is described as Caucasian, approximately five-feet-six, 120 pounds, with short brown hair.
Hunter is described as Caucasian, approximately two-feet-nine and 20 pounds.
Anyone with any information should call 911.
An amber alert was not issued as police don’t believe there is any imminent danger of bodily harm or death to the child at this time.
