An amber alert allegedly abducted by members of the same siblings found a system dedicated to the search for missing children “never seen” in the country.
“Usually, we see one of the parents or grandparents abducting their child. On the other hand, we have never seen siblings trigger an amber warning in Quebec or Canada,” said Bina Archmon, general manager of the Children’s Return Network for more than 25 years.
MMe Arkhamon said he was “surprised” that such a warning had been issued in connection with the abduction of a 16-year-old girl on Monday evening on the island of Montreal.
She particularly frowned when at least three people, including two of the victim’s brothers, were reportedly abducted.
“The Amber Alert system has been in place in the province since 2003. In my experience, a kidnapping is a rare occurrence across the country.
Some victims who are subject to amber alerts sometimes have more tragic results than the young man who was abducted on Monday.
One year ago, on July 8, 2020, all of Quebec were shocked when sisters Nora and Romy Carpentier were abducted. The bodies of two girls, 6 and 11, who ended the longest amber warning in Quebec history, were finally found on July 11. The sisters were abducted and killed by their father, who later took his own life.
Missing 10-year-old Ariel Jeffrey Coco has never been found in the district of Ahundsik-Cartierville, Montreal. The warning, which began on March 13, 2018, was revoked a few hours later by the Service de Police de la Ville de Montreux.
The success rate of Amber Awareness is even higher in Canada and the United States. The speed with which information is released, and the co-operation of the public, allows the police to locate children quickly and quickly, ”Bina assured Arkhamon.
Basic criteria for triggering amber alert:
- The child must be under 18 years of age;
- Authorities suspect the child was abducted;
- The child is in immediate danger;
- Information is available to help locate a child or kidnapper (for example, a child’s description, suspect or kidnapper’s vehicle).
