Officials issued an Amber Alert for an 11-month-old baby named Abby Mathewsie, who Ottawa Police say was last seen with her mother on June 3.

UPDATE: Police announced at just before 9:30 a.m. on Friday that the missing baby has been found safe and is now receiving medical attention. One person is now in custody.

EARLIER: The alert went off at 3:50 a.m. on June 4, saying that the suspect was a 70-year-old named Miriam — police had originally stated that Mathewsie could be with her grandmother, but have since issued a correction, saying that they do not believe this to be the case.

Mathewsie is described by police as an Indigenous female with short black hair, with a feeding tube attached to her nose.

She was last seen around Carling Avenue and Pinecrest Road in Ottawa at 1:55 a.m. on Friday and was reportedly wearing a navy blue Montreal Canadiens onesie.

Anyone who has seen Abby, or has any idea about the pair's whereabouts, should immediately call 911.

Police are now treating the incident as suspicious

Authorities provided an update on Twitter at just before 8:30 a.m. on Friday, saying that they are "treating this missing incident as suspicious."

"The OPS Emergency Services Unit has been conducting a ground search of the area since early this morning. There is a large police presence in the area," the update continued.

As the search continues, "investigators are asking nearby residents to search their properties and report anything suspicious," wrote Ottawa Police. They have supplied a photo of a potential witness, and ask anyone who believes they can identify the woman to call police immediately.
