Possible alleged abduction under investigation in Fort St. John


Fort St. John RCMP are looking to speak with a mother and child after a possible attempted abduction.

All three were described as South Asian or Middle Eastern.

The police are also looking to speak with the woman and her child to confirm their well-being.

The woman is described as between 25 and 30-years old, 5’4, 170 lbs with a full cover purple burqa, purple pants and a purple top.
