Suspect Arrested in Child Kidnapping Case in Alberta

An Amber Alert remains in place and a suspect has been arrested a day after an Alberta father was found dead and his two-year-old daughter was abducted from a small town near the Alberta-B.C. border.

Hailey Dunbar-Blanchette, 2, was taken from a residence in Blairmore, Alta., around 3:30 a.m. Monday, according to Crowsnest RCMP.

An Amber Alert was issued in Alberta on Monday afternoon and later extended to B.C., Saskatchewan, and south of the border in Montana.

Dunbar-Blanchette is described as a two-year-old white girl with a small build, brown eyes and light brown hair with bangs.

RCMP Supt. Tony Hamori told reporters Tuesday afternoon a 22-year-old male was arrested earlier in the day in Blairmore. The suspect has not been charged.

Hamori also said that Hailey remains missing and that the Amber Alert will be renewed.

      Until they charge him he’s just a person of interest.

          You could feed him to the pigs and see if he confesses.
