CHILD ABDUCTION – We need your help to locate 5yr-old Jannah JAFFRI, who was abducted by her father Soloman JAFFRI from Armadale PS in Markham. Left the school in a taxi. If you spot her or her father call 9-1-1. Updates to follow. pic.twitter.com/lAt3nFsk0y
Police first alerted the public to the abduction two hours ago. The amber alert only came into effect a little less than an hour ago.
Jannah Jaffri is about four feet tall, with light brown, shoulder-length hair, and brown eyes. She was wearing a pink sweater, white tank top, grey leggings, navy blue coat and carrying a sparkly white unicorn backpack.
Her father, Soloman Jaffri, is a 25-year old man who measures 6'1". He has short brown hair and a tattoo that says “Jannah” on right arm.
He was wearing a navy blue dress coat and black cargo pants. He is not supposed to have access to the child
This case is chillingly reminiscent of anotherrecent case of child abduction. Last month, a girl was abducted by her father. After spending the afternoon with his daughter for the child's birthday, the father never returned her to her mother. Though he was located quickly, the child was later found dead.
Please stay alert to any sightings of this girl. Pray and hope that she is found safe. If you have any information contact 9-1-1.
The custom airstream company in Montreal said Madonna's 1975 Airstream Sovereign 31' vehicle was designed in the likeness of a five-star hotel, featuring a custom leather couch and matching armchairs, retractable 50-inch TV monitors, a minibar and ice bin, heated floors, a tufted wall with custom light fixtures, a top-of-the-line sound system and custom under-carriage lights.
The RV even converts into a cigar lounge, built with a custom humidor and commercial air purifiers.
The price tag? A cool $200,000 USD. And Custom Airstream said other custom builds could cost up to $500,000 USD.
It's not the first time the Montreal-based camper customization company has worked with Madge. It also partnered with her on a "personal project" she hosted in the Hamptons in 2014.
"We're beyond excited to be part of Madonna's fun family moment," said a statement by David Schirmer, vice-president of sales and marketing at Custom Airstream.
"We woke up to a flood of phone calls, email and social media messages. People have been knocking down our door – it's been overwhelming in the best way possible. It's such an honour for our humble Québec company to add a little magic to Madonna's American Life!"
"Club Med Québec Charlevoix offers a one-of-a-kind vantage point at the heart of the Charlevoix region: built between the [Saint-Lawrence] river and the mountains, this Resort will offer you an incredible view of the mountain," according to the website, which calls this "the first Club Med mountain resort with waterfront views." There are other Club Med mountain resorts in the French, Swiss, and Italian Alps as well as China and Japan.
The Québec Charlevoix resort has 302 rooms and a private five-star luxury space with 25 suites. Select rooms "channel" the colours of Quebec, according to the website, "with winter white, twilight blue, and yellow sun decor." There are also three restaurants and, of course, one of them features ski chalet favourites, such as fondue and raclette.
Guest get unlimited meals and beverages, and daily entertainment, as well as unlimited ski-in/ski-out access, lift tickets, and group ski and snowboard lessons included in the all-inclusive package. For additional costs, guests can also try out Quebec activities like ice-skating, dog sledding, and sugar shack visits during the winter or biking, hiking and whale watching during warmer months.
On Tuesday, Quebec Health Minister Christian Dubé tweeted that the COVID-19 situation in Quebec's Mauricie region was "worrying," particularly among unvaccinated and partially-vaccinated 18- to 30-year-olds, as cases in Mauricie–Centre-du-Québec jumped from 17 to 146 between July 22 and August 2.
"As elsewhere in the world, the recent increase in the number of cases is worrying," Legault tweeted.
"We will be announcing new measures in the coming days."
On August 4, the province reported a total of 184 new cases of COVID-19 in Quebec.
