The SQ has located the child and the suspect.
Four days after issuing an amber alert for 3-year-old Jake Côté in Bas-Saint-Laurent, Quebec's provincial police announced it had "located the child and the suspect" thereby ending the active amber alert.
At around 6 p.m. on Saturday, the Sûreté du Québec (SQ) tweeted that it had deployed police officers on Chemin de la Coulée-Carrier in Sainte-Paule. Police said this was "linked to the events that led to the triggering of the Amber alert on August 31 in the same sector."[facebook https://www.facebook.com/plugins/post.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fpolicesureteduquebec%2Fposts%2F4536847789715789&show_text=true&width=500" expand=1]
Minutes later, a new tweet stated that the pair had been found and the amber alert was over.
The SQ previously alleged that the boy had been abducted in Sainte-Paule by his father, 36-year-old David Côté.
"For the moment, we will not communicate further so as not to interfere with the current operation. We ask citizens to stay away from the area," the SQ tweeted.
