Police searching Ste Madeleine pond for child

Police are currently on location at the Usine/Ste Madeleine pond after they received a report that a child may have been thrown into the waters on Tuesday.

Police received a report that around 7 pm yesterday, a woman was seen walking with a child in the area.

A scream was heard, followed by the sound of a child crying.

The woman was then seen fleeing the scene in a gold coloured Nissan Almera.

Eyewitnesses say the child was not with her at that time.  

Police and emergency health services were notified.

A search was conducted last night; however, the child was not found so search efforts resumed today.

It is believed that the child may have been abandoned in the area.
