Quebec provincial police have lifted an Amber Alert for a one-year-old girl who was allegedly abducted earlier Wednesday.
The Sûreté du Québec (SQ) said in a tweet shortly before 5 p.m. that the toddler was found "safe and sound" in the Saint-Hyacinthe area.
Police had earlier reported that the child was taken in Nova Scotia and was last seen in Saint-Louis-de-Blandford, Que., a town about 160 kilometres northeast of Montreal.
Police did not release any further details.
