Three people are facing charges after a pregnant teenager was allegedly abducted from her Saskatchewan home earlier this week.
RCMP issued an Amber Alert Thursday morning after a 14-year-old girl was allegedly taken from her family’s Maple Creek home on Wednesday night.
Police were concerned for the safety of the girl, who is eight months pregnant, after her family said she had been taken by two masked intruders, one of whom was believed to be the girl’s 16-year-old boyfriend.
Police called off the Amber Alert Thursday evening after the boyfriend’s family brought both the girl and her boyfriend to an RCMP detachment in Swift Current.
The boyfriend’s family later called the incident a misunderstanding.
RCMP said two 16-year-old males from Maple Creek have been charged with abduction of a person under the age of 16, breaking and entering and disguise with intent.
One of the teens is also charged with possession of a weapon dangerous to the public.
Police also said a 38-year-old Maple Creek woman is facing the same abduction charge as the teens, as well as a charge of obstruction of a police officer.
The names of the suspects, as well as anyone whose name may reveal the suspects identities, are protected under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
