WINNIPEG — RCMP in Manitoba have safely located Luisa Noyemi Alvarenga within an hour of an Amber Alert being issued for the child.
The eight-year-old girl was taken by her biological mother, Colleen Sheryl McIvor, 43, from her Portage la Prairie residence at around 11 a.m. Friday.

Police were concerned for Luisa’s well-being and said she may have been in Long Plain First Nation.
