An Amber Alert has been issued for a one-year-old child missing from the Lachine borough in Montreal.
Police are asking for the public’s help in finding Zeynab Cherrabbi El Alaoui, who was abducted at around 9:25 a.m. Tuesday from a home on Louis Basile Pigeon Street.
Police are looking for the child’s mother, 18-year-old Miryanna Monterrosa-Laberte. She has a scar on her upper lip and on her forehead, according to the alert that was issued shortly after 1:30 p.m. She is approximately five feet three inches tall and weighs about 120 pounds.

The one-year-old girl is two feet (60 centimetres) tall and is wearing a pale pink onesie with a pink and white unicorn on it.
According to Montreal police spokesperson Jean-Pierre Brabant, the grandparents had legal custody of the child. The child was put to bed Monday night, and when the grandmother went to check on her Tuesday morning, the child was missing, and the bedroom window was found opened.
Police located the child’s father, a 20-year-old man, in Laval and are questioning him. Police consider him an “important witness” in the investigation.
Police say they are not aware of a vehicle involved in the search, which spans an area 500 kilometres around the City of Montreal.
A command centre has been set up near the home where the child was living as police continue their search.
Anyone with information is urged not to approach the suspect and to call 911.
This is a developing story that will be updated.
