A missing 8-year-old girl from Calgary has been located near Abbotsford.
The girl was reported missing early this morning, after her parents awoke to find her and her 19-year-old brother missing, along with the family vehicle.
Staff Sgt. Deron Brown with the Hope RCMP says the vehicle was spotted on Highway One, just outside of Hope. Mounties then moved in near Abbotsford and took them into custody.
“It was very relaxed. He was actually stopped in traffic due to an accident further up ahead, and our members just initiated a traffic stop and he was arrested without incident”
Brown says the girl was unharmed, and that the brother did not offer an explanation.
“The girl was safe and sound, no injuries to either party, and he was brought back to Chilliwack in custody.”
Charges are pending against the older brother, however investigators are not sure what motivated the incident.
Investigators say they nearly issued an AMBER Alert, however the child turned up before they were able to determine whether the case met the criteria for one.
Names of the individuals will not be released.
