Some new developments are emerging regarding the disappearance of 2 year old Hailey Dunbar-Blanchette and the murder of her Father Terry. The girl's body was found Tuesday near Blairmore and her father's body was discovered in a home in the town on Monday.
"She has a lot of fun and didn't want to be with anyone but her dad", Friesen said.
Police have confirmed that Hailey isn't with her mother; Cheyenne Dunbar has traveled down to Blairmore, which is located in southwest Alberta, and is co-operating with the investigation.
A suspect was arrested today in connection with the abduction of a two-year-old girl and the murder of the missing girl's father in Alberta. He said nothing much else could be said about the investigation at this point, "other than to thank the public and the media for helping us find Hailey".
Investigators believe the girl had been taken from the home around 3;30 a.m.by a suspect or suspects in a newer model white van with a large rear antenna and a flag flying from it.
Dunbar-Blanchette is a caucasian female child, small build, light brown, straight hair with bangs, and brown eyes. Tony Hamori. "The scene has been secured and will be released upon completion of the investigative work now underway at that location".
However, after Hailey was born, there were no more court appearances.
The AMBER Alert was extended in Montana on Tuesday afternoon by the Montana Department of Justice. And the atmosphere with the more than 100 people at a candlelight vigil at Blairmore's Lions Park Tuesday night quickly changed from hopeful to tearful.
RCMP also noted they were no longer asking for the public's help locating the white van being sought in the case.
The mother, Cheyenne Dunbar, Mathieson said, used to live there as well until about a year ago.
Canada's Amber Alert system has been implemented across all 10 Canadian provinces since 2004, though Dzikowicz says none of the territorial governments have put the system in place. Blanchette's Facebook posts switched from talk of court dates to pictures of him with his baby daughter.
