Layla Sabry, a nine-year-old Ontario girl, who was the subject of an Amber Alert a week ago, has been located and her mother has been charged with child abduction.
Niagara regional police say they found Layla Sabry and her mother, Allana Haist, in Hamilton early Monday morning.
They say the girl has been returned to her grandparents and is doing well.
They had been on the lam since Dec. 1 and their whereabouts a mystery.
Chief Jeffrey McGuire says tips from the public coupled with the police investigation helped find the pair.
“Everyone involved in this matter is relieved that both the child and her mother have been found safely,” he said. “The NRPS would like to thank the members of the community for their assistance and also thanks to the media for assisting with the public awareness in this case.”
