A witness contacted the authorities in Summerside yesterday because they saw a girl in a car yelling that she was being kidnapped. An Amber Alert went out with a description and other details.
Later on yesterday, the girl contacted police to let them know that she had been yelling to a friend in another vehicle... it was a joke between friends. Police confirmed the details and issued a statement saying thank you to everyone who helped resolve the case.



Provincial Election to Happen Sept 14th:
In case you were wondering, it's been less than two years since our last Provincial election. That one was a bit of a doozy where Brian Gallant got to be Premier for little while before Blaine Higgs.
