Cornwall police are seeking a 25-year-old woman after an alleged parental abduction of two young girls on Friday.
Two girls, aged two and four, met with their mother and father for a scheduled access meeting "at an approved place of safety" before the parents left with the girls without authorization, police said.
Cornwall police were called and asked for the help of the Akwesasne Police Service and Mohawk Tribal Child Welfare Service, because the suspects were believed to live in their jurisdiction.
After an investigation, the children were returned to safe custody on Sunday at about 7:30 p.m. A 29-year-old man turned himself in to police on Tuesday, and was charged with two counts of abduction in contravention of a custody order.
