Manitoba RCMP are asking the public for any information into the whereabouts of a missing 18-month-old girl, Seaira Neveah Hunter.
On February 15, 2016, Selkirk RCMP were advised that 18-month-old Seaira Neveah Hunter and her 36-year-old mother Rebecca Mikolash, had not attended a scheduled visitation with Seaira’s father. Rebecca Mikolash was taking care of Seaira but did not have the authority to take her daughter outside of her local area.
RCMP investigators spoke with Rebecca over the phone on the morning of Wednesday, February 15, and she confirmed that she had Seaira and that both were doing well. However, she declined to meet with police. Further contact was made between a family member and Rebecca the same day during the evening, but again, Rebecca declined to meet with police.
Investigators have been searching and attempting to locate Seaira and her mother throughout the day and into the evening but have been unable to make further contact.
“We are asking for Rebecca to contact us so that we can confirm that Seaira is doing well,” said Chief Superintendent Mark Fisher of the Manitoba RCMP. “We are also asking anyone who may have seen or been with Rebecca and Seaira to contact their local police immediately.”
Police believe that Rebecca is traveling west with Seaira in a grey 2001 Ford Taurus with Manitoba licence plate number GVD 275. They may be in western Saskatchewan (North Battleford/Saskatoon area) or Alberta.
Seaira Hunter is described as Caucasian, approximately 2’9″ tall and weighs 20 lbs. Rebecca Mikolash is described as Caucasian, approximately 5’6″ tall, weighs 120 lbs and has short brown hair.
Manitoba RCMP have issued a Canada wide warrant for Rebecca Mikolash for the abduction of a child under 14.
