Shelburne Baby Safe After 7 Hour Disappearance

    An 11 day old infant is safe and doing well after a harrowing experience yesterday for her family in Shelburne. The baby girl was forcibly removed from her home by her father following a domestic dispute with the new-mother.
    The RCMP were alerted and a 7 hour search was initiated. RCMP Sgt. Brigit Leger says father and baby were spotted late last evening by the Mounties, far from home, in the northern part of the province. Leger says: "Shortly after 11pm last evening (Sep 21), the father and child were found in a vehicle heading west on highway 104 near Oxford. Both were safe and in good health."
    The infant has been returned home and re-united with her mother.
    The father is in RCMP custody but no charges have yet been laid.
