Winnipeg police issued a direct plea to Sandra Giesbrecht on Thursday in hopes of locating her and her children.
Montana Giesbrecht, 11, and Josh Giesbrecht, 9, have been missing since Monday. Both children were last seen near Lumsden Avenue in St. James.
Giesbrecht, 44, is accused of taking the children while only having visitation rights.
“We care, Sandra,” Det. Sgt. Shaunna Neufeld said through the media during a news conference. “We want to help and I know that we can bring this all to a peaceful resolution quickly.”
A Canada-wide arrest warrant was issued for Giesbrecht on Wednesday.
Montana is described as a Caucasian female, 4’5” in height, small build, and short dirty-blonde hair. She was last seen wearing a yellow Minion T-shirt, a white blouse, and black Capri leggings.
Josh is a Caucasian male, 4’2”, long dirty-blonde hair, and small build. He was last seen wearing a dark blue sweater overtop of a grey T-shirt with a basketball picture on it and blue sweatpants.
Police say the children were seen getting into a four-door white car.
