Canada-wide warrant issued for mother of missing Manitoba toddler.

A Canada-wide warrant for child abduction has been issued for the mother of a toddler from Selkirk, Manitoba.

RCMP in Selkirk say they received a report Wednesday morning that Rebecca Mikalosh and her 18-month-old daughter Seaira Neveah Hunter missed a scheduled visit with Seaira’s father.

Mikalosh has custody of the girl but did not have the authority to take her outside her local area.

Police say that officers and family have spoken with Mikalosh on phone and she has confirmed that she had Seaira and that both were doing well, but she refused to meet with police.

Police believe Mikalosh is travelling west with Seaira in a grey, 2001 Ford Taurus with Manitoba licence plate number GVD 275, and may be in western Saskatchewan, possibly around North Battleford or Saskatoon, or in Alberta.

RCMP have issued a Canada-wide warrant for Mikalosh for the alleged abduction of a child under 14.
