As the Fort St. John RCMP continues to investigate possible child abduction earlier this week, Staff Sgt. Steve Perret issued a release saying that police are checking in with local schools to make sure no child is unaccounted for.
He says thus far, there is no evidence to suggest abduction took place.
As of now, no children have been reported missing, and no parents have come forward to advise police that this was a case of a child being disciplined.
“We are hoping that the persons from this white SUV come forward to provide an explanation as to what happened or someone out there has information about what happened,” said Staff Sgt. Perret. “This is being treated as a priority investigation, but we need the public’s assistance in figuring out what actually occurred.”
The incident occurred at approximately 6 PM on Wednesday night, where a child was allegedly brought into a white Ford Explorer type SUV against their will.
Police say no children have been reported missing in Fort St John and no parents have come forward to advise police this was a case of a child being disciplined.
Fort St. John RCMP is asking anyone with more information regarding the identity of the people involved, and who the vehicle may belong to, to contact them.
Further information will be released as it becomes available.
