Charges laid and warrant obtained for the arrest of Michael Gordon Jackson – LOCATED

Saskatchewan – RCMP Statement – Speaking points – Sarah Jackson and Michael Gordon Jackson located by RCMP:

Good afternoon. I am Sergeant Major Darryl Milo with the Saskatchewan RCMP.

“We have some good news…”

This is what our Regina RCMP General Investigation Section officers told Mariecar this afternoon just before they advised her they had found her daughter, Sarah.

Around noon today, Sarah Jackson was located over 1300 kilometers away from Regina – in Vernon, British Columbia.

Vernon RCMP officers located Michael Gordon Jackson and Sarah Jackson in a vehicle parked outside of a business in Vernon, BC. No one else was with them.

Michael Gordon Jackson was arrested without incident. He remains in custody and will be returned to Saskatchewan for court proceedings.

Sarah Jackson was safe and she will be reunited with her mom later today.

Mariecar has been waiting for this day, and that phone call from our investigators, since last year. She would like to thank everyone who played in a role in helping to locate her daughter.

This includes every single person who took a moment to listen to her pleas released today and last week. Those that shared these videos and kept the conversation about her daughter going.

Mariecar has asked for privacy at this time as she understandably takes some time to reunite with Sarah.

When Saskatchewan RCMP investigators stand at this podium, often times we are not speaking about good news. This is the nature of the work we do.

Today, we achieved the outcome we have been diligently working towards: reuniting Sarah with her mom.

We want to thank the many police officers from multiple police agencies and in multiple provinces who assisted with this investigation since November of last year.

We can say that we received tips and information from multiple provinces.

The first video we released on February 15 reached over 440,000 people and was shared over 13,000 times. In the first hour after posting the second video today the video was shared 177 times and reached over 4,500 people.

To the public and our news partners – those here today, thank you. You played a role in assisting us with this investigation.

While we cannot go into detail about the specific steps our officers need to take, we want to say this investigation is not over.

The return of Sarah to her mother is very new and the investigation is ongoing.

Since January 5, when an enforceable court order was issued, investigators have followed up on several tips and reported sightings of Michael Gordon Jackson and his 7-year-old daughter, Sarah Jackson. Every one of these has been thoroughly investigated and police officers have determined all sightings reported to police were not Michael Gordon Jackson or his daughter. This included officers attending to multiple businesses to view surveillance video. Investigators are ensuring Sarah’s legal guardian is aware of all steps officers are taking to locate the child. Additionally, officers continue to work closely with and consult with crown prosecutors as well as other government and community partners.

“Locating Michael Gordon Jackson and Sarah is a top priority for Saskatchewan RCMP officers,” said Chief Superintendent Tyler Bates, Officer in Charge of the Saskatchewan RCMP South District. “Our investigators are diligently following up on all tips and reported sightings. Every piece of information received is thoroughly examined and investigated. The charge laid against Michael Gordon Jackson is significant. The seriousness of the charge is reflected in the fact that the Saskatchewan RCMP have laid 34 charges in relation to 21 investigations since 1998. We are committed to locating Michael Gordon Jackson and reuniting Sarah with her mom.”
