Laval police find kidnapped 8-year-old girl, unharmed but tied up in a car by pdtechintegration An eight-year-old girl who was kidnapped on her way to school in Laval Tuesday morning was found unharmed an hour and a half later by police, as local authorities were preparing to issue an Amber Alert. A 54-year-old woman, whom police say is known to the child’s family, was arrested and is expected in court on Wednesday to face charges of kidnapping, forcible confinement and wearing a disguise to commit a crime. The child was taken around 7 a.m., when police say a woman wearing a wig and dark glasses drove alongside the girl and, showing her a puppy, tried to get the child to enter the vehicle. Police allege that when that approach failed, she forced the child into the vehicle and sped off. School authorities called the child’s mother to say her daughter had not shown up for class. The mother called 911. Laval police said they were on the verge of issuing an Amber Alert, which would have informed police forces and news outlets across the country of the child’s disappearance, when they received a tip. That information led to the interception of the vehicle by municipal police on the South Shore as it drove through Beloeil. The child was found on the car seat, tied up but otherwise physically unharmed. Police learned afterward that a family dispute seems to have been at the origin of the incident.
