WINNIPEG – The RCMP are seeking the public’s help in finding an 18-month-old girl after police say her mother took her.

Rebecca Mikalosh, 36, did not show up with her daughter Seaira Neveah Hunter for a scheduled visitation with the girl’s father in Selkirk, Man., Wednesday morning.

Mikalosh and the father have shared custody of Seaira, but the mother is not allowed to take her outside of the area, police said.

RCMP did get in touch with the mother by phone. She told them she had the girl, everyone was doing well but she wasn’t going to meet with police. Police called her again Wednesday night, but Mounties said she again declined to meet with police.

“Further contact was made on the evening of Wednesday Feb. 15, between a family member and Rebecca, but again she declined to meet with police,” Const. Paul Human from the Selkirk RCMP detachment said.

“We are asking for Rebecca to contact us to know Seaira is doing well,” he said.

An Amber Alert has not been issued because they don’t believe the girl is in any imminent danger, he said.

It is believed Mikalosh may have taken Seaira west in a grey 2001 Ford Taurus with Manitoba licence plate GVD 275. Police also think Mikalosh is currently in western Saskatchewan, and heading west towards British Columbia.A Canada-wide warrant has been issued for the mother.

It’s still unknown why Mikalosh abducted her daughter, police said.

“We are also asking anyone who may have seen or been with Rebecca and Seaira to contact their local police immediately,” Human said.

“There are eyes across the country looking for this car.”
