UPDATE: Abducted Saskatoon woman found, search ended for alleged abductor

SASKATOON – Family and friends of an abducted Saskatoon woman were handing out flyers on Sunday in an effort to located her.

Global News spoke with her brother who said he just wants his sister brought home safely.

He spent hours canvassing neighbourhoods flyers in hand hoping to come across new information about his sister’s whereabouts.

“It’s one of the worst things you can imagine,” he said.

“You know, I’ve seen it in movies. You hear about it, but never experience it firsthand.”

Police say the woman was abducted in Saskatoon’s Haultain neighbourhood at about 4 p.m. on Friday.

The abduction suspect, 36-year-old Clinton McLaughlin, is known to police and has access to firearms.

Saskatoon police believe an abduction suspect Clinton McLaughlin is armed and dangerous.

“We do have enough information that would indicate to us that Mr. Mclaughlin may be armed and dangerous,” said Alyson Edward with Saskatoon police.

“We have a big group of people, about 800 flyers. We’re going to go to all areas of the city and try to hit up the most popular places,” said the woman’s brother.

She is described as a white female, 5’8″, 145 pounds, with shoulder length brown hair and brown eyes.
