UPDATE: Police in Quebec report the child was found safe and sound in the St. Hyacinthe area.
Quebec provincial police have issued an Amber Alert for a one-year-old child who was allegedly abducted in Nova Scotia and was last seen in Saint-Louis-de-Blandford, Que., a town about 160 kilometres northeast of Montreal.
The child, Laura Macphee, was taken by 31-year-old Jessie-Wayne Macphee, according to an alert issued just after 4 p.m. by the Sûreté du Québec (SQ).
Police initially said the child was abducted in Quebec, but an SQ spokesperson later clarified that she was taken in Nova Scotia.
Police are looking for the man who was driving a 2008 red Toyota Corolla with the Nova Scotia licence plate HCT 840.
If anyone has information they are asked to call 911 and advised not to approach the suspect.
