Carberry RCMP are asking for the public's assistance in locating a 29 year old female along with her two children.
The two children were not returned to their father after a two day legal parental visit with their mother. When the father went to their school to pick them up on September 28 he was told that his children were not there and had not been there on the 27th either.
Police have been looking for 8 year old Malaina Chartier, and 6 year old Colton Nordstrom, both from Brandon since that date.
Their mother, 29 year old Jessica Chartier is wanted on a Canada-Wide Warrant of arrest for Abduction. She is believed to be with the children and driving a grey 2016 Chrysler 200, with Manitoba licence plate: GJX890. Jessica Chartier is described as Caucasian, 5'7", 150 pounds, with black or blonde hair and brown eyes.
Colton is described as 3-3.5 feet tall, with blonde hair and wearing dark-framed, round glasses.
Melaina is described as 3.5-4 feet tall, with dark shoulder-length hair.
Jessica and her children were last seen on the evening of October 1, 2018, in Virden, Manitoba.
Anyone with information is asked to call 911.
