The 8-year-old child and the 28-year-old accused male of the Amber Alert issued in Ontario earlier today have both been located.

The child is safe and the male remains in police custody.

Christopher Daniel Poulin was located after an extensive search by members of the Thunder Bay Police Service’s Containment Team and Emergency Task Unit.

The 28-year-old was apprehended in a rural area of Thunder Bay's north side at approximately 8:15 p.m.

Poulin was arrested without incident and is now facing charges of abduction, forcible confinement, and breach of release order.

It was initially believed that Poulin could be headed towards Prince Albert.

He is expected to appear in bail court tomorrow.
