Lawyer for missing N.S. toddler’s family hopes cyberbullying law can stop online vitriol against boy’s parents

The parents of a Nova Scotia toddler who went missing this spring have spent the last six months coping with an added torment: thousands of people on social media accusing them of being responsible for their child's disappearance. "I get angry," Jason Ehler, the boy's father, told The Current's Matt Galloway about what it's like seeing the comments online. "There's no words for the feelings I get sometimes. You know, on top of trying to find my son and everything else, to deal with that, too? Shame on them." Three-year-old Dylan Ehler was playing in his grandmother's yard in Truro, N.S., when he disappeared on May 6. Search and rescue teams found his boots, but there has been no other trace of him since....

RIP – N.S. police dog remembered for tracking murder suspects, locating missing people

Condolences are being offered for former Nova Scotia RCMP police service dog, Baylee. The German shepherd worked with police for seven years before retirement in 2018. Baylee's handler, Const. Brent Bates, said she died Thursday. They had been together for nine years. He said she was diagnosed with chronic kidney failure in July and slowly declined. She would have turned 11 in November. "She was a fantastic dog to work with, she had the right personality where at work she was very serious and driven and just never gave up and just kept chasing and working until the found the bad guy or found the missing kid," Bates said...

Disappointed in RCMP, First Nations communities start their own alert system

There are still many unanswered questions about the alleged abduction of a 14-year-old girl in Cape Breton -- specifically, why an alert wasn't issued. First Nations communities on the island aren't waiting for answers, though -- they're planning their own alert system. By phone call, text or email, residents in five First Nation communities will soon be able to receive alerts from their local representatives. It's a new system that comes at a time when issuing an alert is at the centre of controversy in the case of a missing Indigenous teen. "I think it's something that's been necessary for quite some time now," said Jennifer Jesty, the emergency management co-ordinator for the Union of Nova Scotia Mi'kmaq...

Group calls for changes to Amber Alert following alleged Cape Breton abduction

A national Indigenous organization is calling for changes to Amber Alert policies following an alleged abduction in Cape Breton this month. The Native Women's Association of Canada believes the wording around the case in Cape Breton, involving the disappearance of a 14-year-old girl, is concerning considering the larger issue around missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls. "Our women are going missing and they are classified as runaways if they are minors," she said. "So this is serious and we need to look at the legality component of this as well," said Lorraine Whitman, the association's president...

Cape Breton man charged with child abduction

A charge against a Cape Breton man accused of abducting an Indigenous teenage girl has people wondering -- once again -- why an Amber Alert wasn't issued when she first went missing. Darcy Doyle was apprehended early Saturday morning in the Canoe Lake area after an extensive three-day search for a 14-year-old girl ended with relief and gratitude. On Monday, the man allegedly at the centre of the search was in a Sydney courtroom to face a criminal charge of abducting a person under the age of 16. "He was charged with abducting a child under the age of 16 from the parent," said Crown Attorney Sheldon Nathanson. "He is now before the court facing a serious charge; it's an indictable offence." Doyle, 47, remains at the Cape Breton Correctional Centre to await a bail hearing on Wednesday. On the Waycobah First Nation, people are happy, but the chief has a lot of questions for the RCMP...

(LOCATED SAFE) – Emergency Alert issued in the search for missing Waycobah teen, Molly Martin

(LOCATED SAFE) Petition: Issue An Amber Alert For Molly Martin

14 year old Molly Martin from Eskasoni First Nation community in Nova Scotia has been missing since Thursday August 13th, she has had no contact with any family and is believed to be with a 47 year old male (Darcy Doyle) who used to be her foster father. The police have labelled her as a runaway and are doing nothing. It is day 4 now and this has not made the news and the police are not searching for her. Systematic racism is alive here in Canada too. Far too many indigenous women go missing every year in Canada- and little to nothing is done by police. There is something terribly wrong with our system when a 14 year old girl is missing and all the police can do is call her a runaway but just last week when a 73 year old man was blueberry picking and got lost on the way back to his car- THE POLICE, SEARCH & RESCUE, HRM FIRE & EMERGENCY & K-9 UNITS SEARCHED UNTIL THEY FOUND HIM.
