Calgary Police say a man believed to be involved in the disappearance of a five-year-old girl has been taken into custody.
Subsequent information was obtained, and as a result, Police will be searching a rural area east of Chestermere for evidence in relation to the case.
On Tuesday, July 12th, at approximately 1:40 a.m., an Amber Alert was issued for Taliyah Leigh Marsman.
Her mother was found deceased in their Panorama home the previous day.
The man taken into custody is believed to have been driving a dark grey sedan in the Panorama community, which investigators believe was involved in Taliyah’s disappearance.
The car was seen driving close to where homicide victim Sara Baillie’s car had been recovered.
Surveillance footage obtained shows the car around the time when Taliyah was last believed to have been seen. The Amber Alert remains in effect.
No further information is available at this time. Police are expected to address the media at some point today.
