A small Saskatchewan girl, six-years-old of age, went missing on Sunday, after she was taken from her family’s SUV. This happened outside a strip mall in North Battleford. As a result of this, an Amber alert was issued on that night.
What do we know about the girl
The police have mentioned that Emma O’Keeffe is three-feet-six-inches tall and weighs 44 pounds. Also, she is Caucasian. She has some medical conditions, such as autism and epilepsy, which clearly puts her at a higher risk, as RCMP Corporal Rob King mentioned. Emma has brown hair, long until the jaw, and she was last seen wearing a navy-blue T-shirt with long sleeves, black jeans and pink socks, without having any shoes. She was wearing a diaper as well. The girl needs medication every 12 hours and as the police stated, a missing dose might lead to a lot of medical distress.
According to RCMP, the SUV was taken around 5 p.m. on Sunday, as it was left running by the child’s mother when she went into the strip mall. At that time, the girl was sitting in the back of the vehicle, in the child seat. As far as the police is concerned, they don’t believe that she could have gotten out of the car by herself. Here is what we need to know about the car: it’s a dark grey 2010, Mercedes Benz GL350 Bluetec SUV and it has a Saskatchewan license plate 897 HMX.
The police stated that this is a case of an abduction by a stranger and based on what they know so far, there is no sign that a family member was involved in the event. We don’t have yet a description of the suspect. The alert has also been expanded in order to include Alberta and Manitoba.
Laura grew up in a small town in northern Quebec. She studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married her husband one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children.
