VULCAN, Alta. – The RCMP has obtained an arrest warrant for the mother who allegedly abducted her daughters near Vulcan, Alberta on Monday.
On Tuesday, officers said the mother was wanted for two counts of abduction.
Around 10:45 a.m. on Monday, Mounties were called to an elementary school in the hamlet of Brandt to investigate a parental abduction.
Officers were informed that two sisters might have snuck out of the school and met up with their biological mother, who is not their legal guardian.
Investigators believe they are travelling in a 2007 black Honda CRV with Alberta licence plate ORNRSE.
An RCMP constable confirmed to Global News on Tuesday that the girls and their mother are in British Columbia. Officers believe they are heading to Vancouver Island – likely Nanaimo or Ladysmith.
Officers add they have seen some posts on social media confirming their whereabouts, and the eldest girl reportedly told a friend they were going to Vancouver Island.
RCMP do not believe the girls are in immediate danger.
