Richmond RCMP asks for help from the public to find a nine-year-old girl who is allegedly in violation of a court order.
A statement from the police said that Amaya Araki-McWilliams was last seen when her mother, Natalie Araki, reportedly took her on Sunday without permission at 1.00 am.
RCMP said they do not believe that the girl is in danger, but that she stayed in a hotel in Richmond with her father, who only has custody.
Amaya is described as four feet, six inches long with black hair. She was last seen with a white shirt on which "Canada" was printed and dark shorts.
Araki, 35, is described as five feet, two inches long with black hair. She was last seen in a black jacket and a black baseball hat.
A statement said that the pair is still supposed to be in the Lower Mainland, possibly in Vancouver or New Westminster.
RCMP said they did not issue an Amber Alert because they do not believe the safety of Amaya is directly at risk.
Anyone to whom information is requested to call their local police or Crime Stoppers to remain anonymous.
