Sparwood, B.C – Sept 9 12:10 p.m. RCMP issued a statement to the media advising that  there has been no confirmed sightings of Randall Hopley, Kienan Hebert or Hopley’s vehicle. RCMP Cpl. Dan Moskaluk urged Hopley to come forward to any RCMP Detachement. “There are no charges confirmed at this time. We need to speak with you. Do the right thing, and know you will be treated with respect. We want and need to see Kienan,” said Moskaluk.

A search of Hopley’s residence will begin today and all tips are being followed up and documented. “As far as the tips stating video surveillance has captured Hopley and Hebert, that has not been confirmed, however businesses are advised to review any video surveillance they may have since Tuesday and notify the police if there is anything suspicious. The public should also check any recreational properties they may have, seasonal or otherwise for anything out of the ordinary or suspicious,” states Cpl.  Moskaluk.

When the question arose about the lack of an Amber Alert being issued in the Province of Alberta, Cpl. Moskaluk noted, “Information was sent to all agencies, so every officer could be informed, and everyone was aware of the need to disseminate the information. Notification has by default, been spreading through the RCMP and media just as if an Amber Alert was issued. We have tremendous resources, over twenty investigators from the Major Crime Unit, and people on patrol by the air, on foot, on horseback, on ATV’s in marked and unmarked vehicles. The Forensic Unit is here and they are still searching Heberts home for clues. Hopleys home has been under surveillance since the onset.

“I know the public has many questions on actions, and please, be rest assured that the will all be answered in due time,” says Cpl. Moskaluk. The Amber Alert, which was extended twenty four hours ago, at approximately five thirty yesterday evening will expire at about  the same time today. The Amber Alert has been activated only ten times in British Columbia, eight of those times were parental abductions, and only one was a stranger abduction.

With an emotional pause, Cpl. Dan Moskaluk commented on what a tremendous family the Heberts are. “They are truly facing thier worst nightmare,” he says. “On behalf of the Heberts, they want to thank everyone for all their support and the media for helping to share the information.”
