Upon learning from the school that her daughter did not show up to class,her mother became immediately concerned. The Journal de Montréal reports that a certain situation regarding the mother's entourage rang alarm bells in the mother's head.

The mother of the young girl immediately sought police's help, who began looking for the suspected entourage member. Reportedly, this person was later arrested.

Police were beginning one last search before officially ringing an Amber Alert. Police headed to the location of the suspect's home.

Luckily, they were able to locate the girl, who had been tied in the back of the car at a residence in Beloeil. The suspect in question, who was wearing a wig, had reportedly forced the child into their car.
