Violet has been found safe, you can read the update here.

Jesse Bennett and his 7-year-old daughter Violet have been missing since Jan. 23, a few days after Family Court ruled Violet must be returned to her mother.

On Jan. 20 Victoria Family Law Court set out a Joint Custody agreement and ordered Jesse to return Violet the same day to her mother.

“We have received a large number of possible sightings across Vancouver Island, the Lower Mainland and even into the Southeastern part of the province,” says Sgt. Trevor Busch of the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP. “Certainly, this is largely thanks to those who have shared Jesse and Violet’s photos, through both mainstream and social media.”

The RCMP are asking the public to keep an eye out for the pair, or their vehicle, which is described as a 2005 grey Honda Civic, four-door sedan with the B.C. license plate HL111E with Christianity focused stickers on the back.
