The family of Aliyah Sanderson and Jasmine Lovett are waiting for answers and say they’re hoping for closure after the pair were reported missing from Calgary earlier this month.

Calgary police continued to hunt for evidence after the disappearance and suspected homicide of Sanderson and Lovett.

On Saturday, police released a stock image of a Mercedes SUV they believe was driven by a man in his 30s in the Bragg Creek, Elbow Falls, Priddis or East Kananaskis area between April 16 and April 20. Police believe he was specifically in the area of Fullerton Loop / Elbow Falls between 2:30 and 4:30 on April 18.

Police believe the man may have been alone, or with either of the victims and may have been carrying mulch in his vehicle.

More than 50 officers from multiple police units continue to search for evidence even with the change in weather. Property owners, along with hikers and bikers are still being asked to contact police if they notice anything out of the ordinary, including any fresh mulch that appears to have been dumped in one of these areas.

The Calgary Police continue to search a residence in Cranston for more evidence related to the missing pair.

“We are devastated by the recent disappearance of Aliyah Sanders and Jasmine Lovett, they are so loved by so many people and we just want answers,” read an online statement from Jodi and Amber Sanderson, family of the pair.

“We are pleading with the public to keep contacting the police with information and checking your properties for anything that seems out of the ordinary.

“We are hoping and praying for closure for everyone involved.”

They go on to thank the Calgary Police for their hard work and the support from others in the Calgary, Priddis and Bragg Creek areas.

The suspect that police arrested April 25 has been released and no charges have been laid, they said. He does remain the primary suspect in the case. Police cannot release the suspect’s identity as he has not been charged with a crime.
