This Amber alert helped find the girls.
By Monday morning, all tweets related to the case had been removed from the agency's page.
"We take [them] off because it's a minor," says Officer Bernard, media officer for the Sûreté du Québec. "We cannot have information [about] minors on the internet."
Once the children have been located, the content about them gets removed.
Officer Bernard also told MTL Blog that currently, a 34-year-old woman is considered a suspect and is being interviewed about what happened with the girls.
This woman's relationship to the two minors could not yet be confirmed due to the ongoing investigation.
When asked how the girls were found, the officer says that they were found by a police officer and that the Amber Alert helped with locating the children.
