The mother wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for taking her own children has successfully escaped from Canada.
Fugitive mother, 4 children flew to Sweden
OTTAWA – Ottawa police now say the woman who was wanted for allegedly abducting her four children did board a plane for Sweden, with the children, last week. On Monday, police said they thought she might still be in Montreal.
Detectives now have information that shows Marie-Emilie Chartier flew out of Montreal's Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport exactly one week ago, en route to Stockholm.Police say they'll be working with Swedish authorities to try to make sure the children are safe. Chartier is wanted on a Canada-wide warrant. Her three girls and a boy, between the ages of 6 and 12, had been seized by the Ottawa Children's Aid Society last year. Recently, they had been placed in the custody of their grandmother. Last Tuesday night, Chartier took her children, and told their grandmother she was going to spend the night at a friend's house.That's when she disappeared.
