Posted:

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police are searching for a missing 2-year-old girl whose father was found dead inside a home in southwestern Alberta.


   Police said Terry Blanchette, 27, was killed in a suspected homicide Monday morning in a home in Blairmore, Alberta, and his daughter, Hailey Dunbar-Blanchette has not been seen since.


   Police say they found Blanchette's body shortly before noon, but investigators believe the girl has been missing since 3:30 a.m.


   Blairmore is about 137 miles (220 kilometers) southwest of Calgary near the British Columbia-Alberta border.


   Police have issued an Amber Alert for the girl and quickly expanded it to British Columbia, Saskatchewan and the U.S. state of Montana. An air and ground search is under way in the region.
