On Thursday, April 25, an Amber Alert was issued for the boy who was last seen in the area of Cawthra Road and Atwater Avenue in Mississauga between 3 pm and 4 pm on Wednesday.

Missing Mississauga mother and son found in Tilbury

Police confirmed to Global News the pair were spotted by a resident at a KFC restaurant in Tilbury, about 20 minutes southwest of Chatham, after hearing details through the Amber Alert. The boy was found safe and uninjured.

Officers said the mother had a preexisting medical condition and if she doesn’t take prescribed medication, she can act “out of character.”

The CTF release indicates on average, "for a vehicle with a 70-litre fuel tank, that works out to saving $35 per fill up. Multiply that by two fill ups a week for the average commuter family in Langley (not a lot of people can afford to live downtown with outrageously high housing costs) and suddenly you’re looking at either spending in Canada or saving in the States $70 extra per week — or $3,600 per year."
