A 22-month-old boy has been reunited with his mother after being abducted from a home in Steinbach.
RCMP say just before 11 p.m. on Wednesday, a 56-year-old woman attended the home of a babysitter and took the child without permission or previous arrangements.
The suspect, who was known to the babysitter, then left the home with the child on a bicycle.
Steinbach RCMP investigated leads into early Thursday morning and located the woman and child at a home in the city just before 8:30 a.m.
The child was safe and reunited with his mother, while the woman remains in custody on charges of abduction.
RCMP continue to investigate.
