The following press release was issued by the RCMP at 1:30 a.m.
This is a de-activation of the Amber Alert system.
At 12:55 a.m. on September 29, 2016, Wakaw RCMP members located the
suspect vehicle at a residence in St. Louis, Saskatchewan.
Investigators then located the two missing children at this residence
and an adult male was taken into custody.
There is no indication the children are physically injured; however, as
a precaution arrangements are being made to have the children looked at
by health care professionals. Arrangements are also being made to
return the children to their families.
The La Ronge RCMP have activated the Amber Alert system to help find two young boys.
The the first victim in the matter is 8-year old Conner Arthur Ratt, who is eight years old. Ratt is described as an Aboriginal male, standing 149.86 cm tall, and weighing 22.5 kilograms.

He has black hair, cut in a brush cut, and was last seen wearing a green t-shirt, a white and green winter coat, blue jeans, and grey high top skate shop shoes.

Police believe he was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt. A recent photo of Charles is attached to this story.
