Missing Alberta girls found in Boston Bar

Mother was arrested Wednesday and now faces two counts of abduction

The mother of two missing Alberta girls was arrested in Boston Bar yesterday after RCMP issued an amber alert in both provinces.

According to police, 12-year-old Talisha Meisel and her six-year-old sister Taya were abducted from their elementary school in Brandt, Alberta Monday morning by 48-year-old Trina Meisel.

It’s believed they travelled to B.C. in a 2007 black Honda CRV with the Alberta license plate ORNRSE. With the help of public tips and information, police were able to locate them in Boston Bar at about 5:20 p.m. Wednesday. All three were taken into police custody and care without any problems.

Meisel, who does not have legal guardianship, now faces two counts of abduction.

The RCMP said the two girls are okay and investigators are working with the Ministry of Children and Family Development with respect to their care.
