Niagara police have cancelled the Amber Alert for five missing children allegedly abducted by their father over a week ago.

But they say the search for Eska, Evalyn, Magnus, Mattias and Sovereign MacDermid continues.

 Police explain the Amber Alert can only be for a set number of hours before it times out.

The children were last seen in Jordan with their father 49 year old Ian MacDermid.

Police believe he took the kids from their family home sometime between September 19th and 25th in contravention of a temporary custody order.

Child and Family Services reportedly investigated and found the children may be in danger.
