According to court documents, a Saskatchewan man was described by his ex-wife as “emotionally and psychologically abusive” before allegedly fleeing with his daughter. Saskatchewan RCMP are on the hunt for Michael Gordon Jackson who is charged with abduction in contravention of a custody order.
RCMP are conducting a search for Michael, and Sarah, his seven-year-old daughter with ex-wife Mariecar Jackson. In 2019, the court gave Michael and Mariecar joint custody of Sarah. Her primary residence is with Mariecar.
Justice Wayne McIntyre found that “given Michael’s views that his opinion is the only one that counts…I am of the view that joint custody will only work so long as Mariecar has the final say on all matters.”

Case ‘disheartening’: Retired RCMP officer
A retired RCMP officer said this particular case is disheartening due to the length of time Mariecar has been away from her daughter.
Sherry Lee Benson-Podolchuk’s best advice for anyone helping Jackson is to turn him in.
“When you’re helping someone who is a fugitive, you’re going to be charged. And if anything happens to that child, you can be charged,” Benson-Podulchuk said.
Benson-Podulchuk added that while it would be difficult to do so with a young child, there is a possibility Michael was able to “sneak” across the border with Sarah. 1:47 Quebec coroner rules SQ waited too long to issue Amber Alert for Carpentier sisters Quebec coroner rules SQ waited too long to issue Amber
