An Amber Alert has been issued for a five-year-old boy last seen with his mother in Mississauga, Ont.

Peel Regional Police said they are trying to locate Ethan Montes, who is believed to be with 47-year-old Juliet Mohammed.

Police said Mohammed is believed to be driving a 2003 grey Toyota Matrix with the licence plate 379 WTM.

Ethan was last seen with his mother in Mississauga on Wednesday afternoon between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m., police said.

The boy was reported missing at 9:20 a.m. Thursday morning by his father and police said they issued an Amber Alert just after 5 p.m.

Police said Mohammed has a pre-existing medical condition that makes her act out of character if not treated. They did not know if she had her medication with her.

"We have information to believe this is out of character for them to go missing for this amount of time," said Const. Iryna Yashnyk.

Police said they have information that the pair may have travelled to the London, Ont., area but authorities didn't know the pair's current whereabouts.

They said Ethan was last seen wearing Batman pyjamas, while Mohammed was wearing a blue shirt, black leggings, a brown coat and black boots.

Anyone who sees the pair is being asked to call 911.
