Alexandra Deacon was last seen leaving her relative’s residence on Brandon Road in Ethel with her mother and brother according to police.
Police said that was around 8 p.m. on Wed., July 5.
On Sunday, police came into contact with the child’s mother and brother around 12:20 p.m. after responding to a suspicious vehicle occurrence on Brandon Road. Police said the child was not with her mother and brother.
“While dealing with that suspicious vehicle occurrence OPP officers had occasion to interact with Alexandra’s mother and her brother officers had concerns for the health and well-being of the mother and through that we determined that there was actually another child involved which was Alexandra,” said Const. Jamie Stanley with the OPP.
Police have not released details of where the girl was located. They said an Amber Alert was not issued because it did not meet the criteria for one.
