An Amber Alert has yet to be issued because the threshold has not been met to declare one, RCMP said
Investigators continue to receive and assess tips from the public in their search for two young girls involved in a possible child abduction.
Five-year-old Leonine O’Driscoll-Zak and two-year-old Wyatt O’Driscoll-Zak remain missing, according to RCMP on Thursday. They were last seen at their home at a rural residence in Cochrane on March 12 at 9:30 a.m.
It is believed the girls are with their grandmother Therese O’Driscoll, 68, and their aunt Alison O’Driscoll, 38.
An Amber Alert has yet to be issued because the threshold has not been met to declare one, RCMP said. However, they are continually assessing the situation and would activate an Amber Alert if there was an indication that something had changed and it crossed that threshold.
Despite having received tips from the public, the location of the girls is still unknown.
Cochrane RCMP continues to encourage anyone with information about the whereabouts of girls, their grandmother or aunt to come forward.
Therese O’Driscoll, the girls’ grandmother, is described as Caucasian with blue eyes, medium-length grey hair, five feet two in height and around 119 pounds. Their aunt, Alison O’Driscoll, is described as Caucasian with blue eyes, long brown hair, five feet three and also 119 pounds.
Both Leonine and Wyatt are described as Caucasian with blue eyes, long blonde hair and slim builds.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Cochrane RCMP at 403-932-2211 or anonymously submit a tip through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.P3Tips.com.
