Amber Alert Cancelled But Children Still Missing Oct 2nd 2019 – UPDATE: Children Found Safe



The five children from Jordan, Ont., who were the subject of an Amber Alert on Tuesday have been found safe. Police said in an update Wednesday afternoon that investigators were led to a rental cottage in Ridgeway. Officers said the children, who range between five and 14 years old, were found inside safe. It is reported that their father was unaware an Amber Alert had been issued; he was not charged with anything at the time the children were found. The investigation is ongoing.


The NRPS posted a video to their Twitter feed to provide information and to thank those who aided in locating the children.



Original Story:


Niagara regional police say they are looking for Eska, Evalyn, Magnus, Mattias and Sovereign MacDermid — and their 49-year-old father Ian MacDermid. The children have been missing since an alleged abduction which happened sometime between September 19th and September 25th. Ontario Child and Family Services investigated and found that the children may be in danger and so police issued an Amber Alert Tuesday night. The Alert ended a few hours later though they say the children have yet to be found.


So it seems that the Niagara Regional Police Service (NRPS) Child Abuse Unit are still conducting an abduction investigation into the whereabouts of five missing children. For more information about the investigation you can check out
The information which was released as part of the information included descriptions of the children, their father, and a possible vehicle they may be in:
Ian MacDermid may be operating a gold or beige coloured pick-up truck.
Ian MacDermid has been described as:
– male, white, approx. 6’0″ tall, 265 to 280lbs, blond hair, blue eyes, with facial hair
The children have been identified as:
Evalyn MacDermid (female, 5 years)
– 3’8, long black hair, medium build. Asian
Mattias MacDermid (male, 10 years)
– 4’8, light brown caramel hair, small/medium build, Asian
Sovereign MacDermid (female, 11 years)
– 5’2, heavy set, long black hair, Asian
Eska MacDermid (female, 13 years)
– 5’1, medium build, long brown hair, Asian
Magnus MacDermid (male, 14 years)
– 5’6, black spiky, medium build, glasses, Asian
Unfortunately, Amber Alerts can only be active for a limited time and so the alert expired before the children were found. However the public is still being asked to contact police with any information on the whereabouts of the MacDermids or their vehicle. The Niagara Regional Police Services put out a message on their Twitter feed informing the public as to what happened.
