Quebec police, RCMP search for missing toddler near U.S. border
Sûreté du Québec, RCMP officers and local firefighters are searching for a missing two-year-old boy, last seen at his family home in Dundee, Que., around 8 p.m. Saturday night.
The boy, Ryland, has strawberry blonde hair, blue eyes and weighs about 30 pounds. He was wearing a grey sweater with a GAP logo, sky blue shorts and blue sneakers.
Canine units and the SQ helicopter were brought in to help in the search, which resumed early Sunday morning.
The town is located in the Montérégie, close to the American border. Firefighters from Vermont have also helped in the search.
"The call for help has been heard by firemen on both sides of the border," said SQ Sgt. Claude Denis.
Provincial police say this is not the first time the toddler has wandered off, adding that their search is made difficult by the current height of cornfields in the area which might obscure a child of that size.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police immediately by calling 911.
