Bodies believed to be missing mom and daughter found in Alberta

Jasmine Lovett and her daughter Aliyah Sanderson have not been heard from since April 16 police say

The suspected remains of Jasmine Lovett and her 22-month-old daughter Aliyah Sanderson were found in a heavily wooded part of Kananaskis Country, a wilderness area on the eastern edge of the Rocky Mountains.

While police did not identify the man at that time, Robert Leeming spoke to reporters and said he was the man who was taken into custody and remained a suspect. Police say charges are pending.

Lovett and Sanderson were reported missing on April 23 after they didn't show up for a family dinner.

A week later Leeming was arrested but was later released after being questioned.

Robert Leeming sits outside his Cranston townhouse on Monday, April 29, after police had spent several days investigating the residence.

He says during the investigation Calgary police received support from RCMP, Alberta Parks, and Search and Rescue and Fish and Wildlife and says there are still two crime scenes out in Kananaskis and investigators may be there for a while. This is expected to occur later today or early tomorrow morning.

Autopsies were to begin Monday, but the cause of death was not expected to be released.


Police say a suspect has been taken into custody and charges are pending.

The prime suspect in the murders of a Calgary mother and her 22-month-old daughter was brought by police the arrest processing unit just before 11:00 p.m. Monday night.

Police also say they are unable to release details about what led to the discovery of the bodies in order "to protect the integrity of this investigation and future court proceedings".

The two had last been seen in the southeast Calgary community of Cranston on April 16.

The search for missing Alberta mother and her young daughter appears to have come to a tragic end.

Police had been searching for the bodies in the Bragg Creek area which is located 40 miles closer to where Leeming said he last saw the pair at his house.
