Edmonton police issued an Amber Alert Tuesday looking for help in locating a nine-month-old girl they believe was abducted by her mother.

The mother, Hua Qin Zhou, and her child, Gao Yixuan, were last seen early Monday morning at a southwest Edmonton home on Mullen Road close to Rabbit Hill Road.

Police were called to the home at 7:45 p.m. and were told the mother left the home with the child between 6:45 a.m. and 5 p.m.

The baby girl is Chinese, has dark hair and a round face.

The mother is Chinese, 36 years old, 5-2", 125 pounds, with straight black hair with yellow highlights.

The mother is believed to have a stroller, baby supplies, and a large suitcase with her as she may be planning to go back to China.

Police said they are concerned for the well-being of the child.

A news conference is scheduled for Tuesday afternoon.
