Ontario provincial police say they are reviewing an Amber Alert that was issued more than four hours after a young child was allegedly abducted by her father.
Police said a four-year-old girl was allegedly snatched from her mother's house in Aurora, Ont., at 4:20 a.m. on Monday.
But the Amber Alert was only issued at about 9 a.m., after police said they received information that suggested the child's life was in danger.
Officers spotted the man's vehicle shortly afterward near Bancroft, Ont., and tried to stop it several times before calling off the chase.
The vehicle was later found rolled over in Pembroke, Ont., and police said the girl was airlifted to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
OPP Sgt. Kristine Rae says York Regional Police, which requested the Amber Alert, can also seek feedback on its handling of the case from a provincial steering committee.
