“We need the public’s help to bring (the girl) home to her mom,” Sgt.-Major Darryl Milo said in the video.

“They are out there: you could see them at a store. They could be in your neighbourhood or your community.”

Michael Gordon Jackson made an appearance on Live with Laura-Lynn on Rumble in early January where he told the host he was keeping his daughter because he did not want her to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

Mariecar and Michael were given joint custody of their daughter in 2019, with Mariecar having final decision-making power, including decisions on health-care procedures.

Mariecar was given full custody of her daughter in January.
