RCMP is requesting assistance locating a Saskatchewan man and his seven-year-old daughter.

In a news release Saturday, RCMP said Michael Gordon Jackson is described as 52-years-old, approximately 250 pounds, with blue eyes and dark brown hair. He typically wears glasses.

Jackson does not have a known vehicle and he is last known as residing in the Carvievale, Saskatchewan area.

He also has connections to Dilke, Oxbow, Alameda, and Regina as well as Lamont, Alberta, RCMP said. However it is possible that he is in other communities besides the ones listed.

RCMP did not provide further information about the circumstances of Jackson and his daughter’s situation.

Mariecar Jackson, the mother of the seven-year-old girl, recently turned to the public for help finding the young girl.

Mariecar told CTV News her ex-husband, Michael, refused to return seven-year-old Sarah after a visit in November. She said she wanted her daughter to be vaccinated; Michael, who is against the vaccine, did not.

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Michael Gordon Jackson or his daughter are asked to contact Saskatchewan RCMP or Crime Stoppers.

A person was sent to hospital after sustaining injuries in a house fire early on Saturday morning.

Fire crews responded to a call just after 8 a.m. in the 2500 block of Gordon Rd, according to a tweet from the Regina Fire Department.

Firefighters arrived at the house fire at 8:14am, entered the residence, and had the blaze under control within 10 minutes.

The home was completely searched and one individual was taken to hospital for treatment of minor burns and smoke inhalation.

The fire is being investigated at this time.

For two months, Mariecar Jackson has been trying to find her seven-year-old daughter who she says was taken by her ex-husband to an undisclosed location because he didn’t want the girl to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

Now, the Regina, Sask.-area mother is turning to the public for help in a desperate bid to find the young girl.

“In a pandemic, we just want to be with our family. We just want everyone to be safe and I don’t know where she is,” Jackson told CTV National News.

“It’s not good for seven-year-old to live in hiding. It just breaks my heart.”

Jackson’s ex-husband, Michael, refused to return seven-year-old Sarah after a visit in November. Mariecar wanted her daughter to be vaccinated; Michael, who is against the vaccine, did not.

Mariecar believes Sarah is being kept from other children, out of school and in hiding.

Meanwhile, Michael appeared on a right-wing talk show from an undisclosed location last week to discuss his views against the vaccine. During the interview, uploaded to the online platform Rumble, he and the host exchange unsubstantiated and disproven stories about COVID-19 vaccines, including false claims that MRNA vaccine change human DNA.

“I’m her father, it’s my job to protect her,” he says in the video.

Even if theres a one in a million chance that your daughter could, not even die, but theres a one in a million chance she couldnt have a baby, wouldnt that be enough?

The missing girl is visible in the background for much of the interview. At one point, the host asks whether the daughter wants the vaccine, at which point her father points the camera at her.

It can change your DNA. I dont believe God wants me to. And it can make you sick and kill you, the girl said.

Saskatchewan RCMP say they are investigating but would not offer further comment on the matter.

Her mother says she still wants her daughter to get vaccinated, but says her main concern is that she returns home safely. She says she is willing to take the decision to court and let a judge decide.

Lawrence Pinsky, family lawyer in Winnipeg, Man., says these kinds of vaccine-related disputes are becoming more common in Canada as the pandemic continues.

“[This] has changed over time and become more of an issue about vaccination where people are asking the court either to vaccinate or to prohibit vaccination of their children,” Pinsky told CTV National News.

“But the courts have been pretty clear across the country but, particularly in Manitoba, the starting presumption is that vaccination is in a child’s best interest.”

In September, a court case in Saskatchewan involving divorced parents who disagreed on the vaccine issue made national headlines, with the judge ultimately siding with the father, who wanted their 13-year-old daughter to get the shot.

In December, a judge in Alberta ruled in favour of a woman who was fighting with her ex-husband over whether their children would be vaccinated against COVID-19, the first case of its kind in the province.

In a similar case in Quebec, a Superior Court judge ruled in favour of a mother who wanted to have her 12-year-old vaccinated against the father’s wishes.

“There may be an unusual case where the parent may be able to prove that for the particular child the vaccine isn’t warranted, that would be extremely rare and you would have to bring strong evidence,” Pinsky said.

“In theory, if one could show some medical reason with particular evidence then there would be a case. Otherwise the presumption is going to be that vaccines are in the child’s best interest.”

On Saturday, Saskatchewan RCMP issued a press release asking anyone with information about Michaels whereabouts to contact police.

The 52-year-old is described as weighing approximately 250 pounds and having blue eyes and dark brown hair. According to police, he does not have a known vehicle.

He resides in the Carievale, Sask., area and may have connections to the communities of Dilke, Oxbow, Alameda, Regina andSaskatoon, Sask. and Lamont, Alta.

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Michael Gordon Jackson or his daughter is asked to call the Saskatchewan RCMP at 310-RCMP (7267) or (306) 780-5563.

Information can also be submitted anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1‐800‐222‐TIPS (8477) or

Lawyers for Prince Andrew and Virginia Giuffre have filed their initial requests for witnesses in her lawsuit accusing the prince of sexually abusing her at age 17.

Recently released documents show that the princes legal team is seeking witness accounts from her husband, Robert Giuffre, and her psychologist, Judith Lightfoot, as part of the civil case filed in the U.S.

Giuffres lawyers, meanwhile, are seeking witness accounts from the princes former assistant and a woman who claims to have seen him at a London nightclub with her during the time in question.

The lawsuit cleared a hurdle after a judge earlier this week refused Andrews request to have it dismissed.

Giuffre sued Andrew, 61, in August, saying she was coerced into sexual encounters with him in 2001 by Epstein and his longtime companion, Ghislaine Maxwell. Giuffre said she was sexually abused by Andrew at Maxwells London home, at Epsteins New York mansion and at Epsteins estate in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The prince has strenuously denied Giuffres allegations, telling the BBC in 2019 that sex with Giuffre didnt happen and that he had no recollection of meeting her.

Recently released documents show that Andrews lawyers argue Giuffre may suffer from false memories, and say she should be questioned about theory of false memories along with other matters discussed during her sessions with Giuffre and any prescriptions she wrote for her.

Andrews lawyers want Robert Giuffre to be questioned about the circumstances under which the couple met around 2002 and their household finances. They want the testimony from the two, who are both Australian residents, by April 29 or as soon as possible after that.

Giuffres lawyers, meanwhile, have filed similar requests for Andrews side. They want testimony from his former assistant Robert Olney, whose name they say appeared in Epsteins phone book under Duke of York, which they say indicates he knew about Andrews travel to Epsteins properties.

Her lawyers are also seeking testimony from Shukri Walker, who they say has been quoted in news reports talking about how she saw Andrew at the London nightclub Tramp during the time period in question with a young woman who might have been Giuffre.

The AP does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they choose to come forward publicly, as Giuffre has.

The FBI and Texas Department of Public Safety are assisting a hostage situation at the Congregation Beth Israel in Colleyville, Texas, according to Colleyville Police Sgt. Dara Nelson.

A law enforcement official familiar with the investigation told CNN there are believed to be at least four hostages, including a rabbi.

There are no injuries at this time, Nelson said, adding that police have evacuated the area.

The FBI negotiators are the ones who have contact with the person in the building. Nelson said. There is no threat to the general public at this time, Nelson added.

The hostage situation took place while the congregation was in the middle of its morning service, which was being livestreamed on Facebook.

The livestream appeared to capture part of the incident before it was removed. Law enforcement officials told CNN they reviewed the stream and are using it to gather clues on the incident and the individuals involved.

Police are asking people to avoid the area.

We are currently conducting SWAT operations around the 6100 block of Pleasant Run Rd, the Colleyville Police Department said. All residents in the immediate area are being evacuated. Please avoid the area.

We ask that you continue to avoid the area. We will continue to provide updates via social media, the police said.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) has agents from the Dallas Field Division assisting with the situation.

Colleyville is located about 15 miles northeast of Fort Worth.

Congregation Beth Israel is affiliated with the Union for Reform Judaism, whose website indicates the congregation serves 157 membership families.

The synagogue, established in 1999 with 25 membership families, was the first Jewish congregation in Northeast Tarrant County, according to CBIs website. The CBI community officially opened its doors to its own new building in 2005.

CBI holds Sabbath morning services every Saturday, and members and non-members alike are welcome to watch along from home on the livestream, a practice many synagogues have adopted in the wake of the pandemic.

An undersea volcano erupted in spectacular fashion Saturday near the Pacific nation of Tonga, sending tsunami waves crashing across the shore and people rushing to higher ground. Tsunami advisories were issued for Hawaii, Alaska and the U.S. Pacific coast.

There were no immediate reports of injuries or on the extent of the damage because all internet connectivity with Tonga was lost at about 6:40 p.m. local time, said Doug Madory, director of internet analysis for the network intelligence firm Kentik.

Tonga gets its internet via an undersea cable from Suva, Fiji, which presumably was damaged. Southern Cross Cable Network, the company that manages the connection, does not know yet if the cable is cut or just suffering power loss, chief technical officer Dean Veverka said. He said he assumed the eruption was responsible.

The Fiji-based Islands Business news site reported that a convoy of police and military troops evacuated King Tupou VI from his palace near the shore. He was among the many residents who headed for higher ground.

In Hawaii, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center reported waves that measured half a metre in Nawiliwili, Kauai and 80 centimetres in Hanalei. The National Weather Service said there were reports of boats getting pushed up in docks, but the hazard diminished as the morning went on.

We are relieved that there is no reported damage and only minor flooding throughout the islands, the tsunami center said, describing the situation in Hawaii. The tsunami advisory for the islands was lifted about 11 hours after the eruption more than 4,828 kilometres away.

On Tonga, home to about 105,000 people, video posted to social media showed large waves washing ashore in coastal areas, swirling around homes, a church and other buildings. Satellite images showed a huge eruption, with a plume of ash, steam and gas rising like a mushroom above the blue Pacific waters.

New Zealands military said it was monitoring the situation and remained on standby, ready to assist if asked.

The Tonga Meteorological Services said a tsunami warning was declared for all of the archipelago, and data from the Pacific tsunami center said waves of 80 centimetres were detected.

A Twitter user identified as Dr. Fakailoatonga Taumoefolau posted video showing waves crashing ashore.

Can literally hear the volcano eruption, sounds pretty violent, he wrote, adding in a later post: Raining ash and tiny pebbles, darkness blanketing the sky.

The explosion of the Hunga Tonga Hunga Haapai volcano was the latest in a series of dramatic eruptions.

Earth imaging company Planet Labs PBC had watched the island in recent days after a new volcanic vent there began erupting in late December.

Satellite images captured by the company show how drastically the volcano had shaped the area, creating a growing island off Tonga.

The surface area of the island appears to have expanded by nearly 45% due to ashfall, Planet Labs said days before the latest activity.

Following Saturdays eruption, residents in Hawaii, Alaska and along the U.S. Pacific coast were advised to move away from the coastline to higher ground and to pay attention to specific instructions from their local emergency management officials, said Dave Snider, tsunami warning coordinator for the National Tsunami Warning Center in Palmer, Alaska.

We dont issue an advisory for this length of coastline as weve done - Im not sure when the last time was - but it really isnt an everyday experience, Snider said.

He said the waves slamming ashore in Hawaii were just under the criteria for a more serious tsunami warning.

It looks like everything will stay below the warning level, but its difficult to predict because this is a volcanic eruption, and were set up to measure earthquake or seismic-driven sea waves, Snider said.

The first waves to hit the continental United States measured about 33 centimetres in Nikolski, Alaska and 59 centimetres in Adak, Alaska. A wave of about 79 centimetres was observed in Monterey, California, according to the U.S. National Tsunami Warning Center.

Beaches and piers were closed across Southern California as a precaution. The National Weather Service tweeted there were no significant concerns about inundation. Strong rip currents were possible, however, and officials warned people to stay out of the water.

On Californias central coast, the National Weather Service reported tsunami waves up to 1.2 metres and flooding in beach parking lots at Port San Luis. About 320 kilometres down the coast, the waves were much smaller at Southern Californias Seal Beach, according to Michael Pless, the owner of M&M Surf School.

The waves are looking pretty flat, Pless said. Were hoping they reopen the beach in a couple hours.

Crowds gathered at the Santa Cruz Harbor in California to watch the rising and falling water strain boat ties on docks. Law enforcement tried to clear people away when big surges started at around 7:30 a.m.

About an hour later, a surge went over the back lip of the harbor, filling a parking lot and low-lying streets and setting some cars afloat. In 2011 after the Japanese earthquake a series of surges cost US$20 million of damage in the harbor.

Although experienced surfers would consider the waves reaching the West Coast barely high enough to qualify as swells, the National Weather Service warned that tsunamis cause deceptive water surges powerful enough to pull people out to sea.

Residents of American Samoa were alerted of a tsunami warning by local broadcasters as well as church bells that rang territory-wide Saturday. An outdoor siren warning system was out of service. Those living along the shoreline quickly moved to higher ground.

As night fell, there were no reports of any damage and the Hawaii-based tsunami center canceled the alert.

Authorities in the nearby island nations of Fiji and Samoa also issued warnings, telling people to avoid the shoreline due to strong currents and dangerous waves. In New Zealand, officials warned of possible storm surges from the eruption.

New Zealands private forecaster, Weather Watch, tweeted that people as far away as Southland, the countrys southernmost region, reported hearing sonic booms from the eruption. Others reported that many boats were damaged by a tsunami that hit a marina in Whangarei, in the Northland region.

Earlier, the Matangi Tonga news site reported that scientists observed massive explosions, thunder and lightning near the volcano after it started erupting early Friday. Satellite images showed a 5-kilometre-wide plume rising into the air to about 20 kilometres.

The Hunga Tonga Hunga Haapai volcano is located about 64 kilometres north of the capital, Nukualofa. In late 2014 and early 2015, a series of eruptions in the area created a small new island and disrupted international air travel to the Pacific archipelago for several days.

There is not a significant difference between volcanoes underwater and on land, and underwater volcanoes become bigger as they erupt, at some point usually breaching the surface, said Hans Schwaiger, a research geophysicist with the Alaska Volcano Observatory.

With underwater volcanoes, however, the water can add to the explosivity of the eruption as it hits the lava, Schwaiger added.

Before an explosion, there is generally an increase in small local earthquakes at the volcano, but depending on how far it is from land, that may not be felt by residents along the shoreline, Schwaiger said.

In 2019, Tonga lost internet access for nearly two weeks when a fiber-optic cable was severed. The director of the local cable company said at the time that a large ship may have cut the cable by dragging an anchor. Until limited satellite access was restored people couldnt even make international calls.

Southern Cross Cable Networks Veverka said limited satellite connections exist between Tonga and other parts of the world but he did not know if they might be affected by power outages.


This version has been corrected to show the Islands Business news site is based in Fiji, not Tonga.
