Kienan Hebert ‘happily home’ playing with brothers and sisters

Police believe the suspected abductor, Randall Hopley of Sparwood, returned the boy to his home. RCMP continue to hunt for the 46-year-old.

Sunday, Sept. 11 at 4 p.m., Paul Hebert spoke to a press conference in Sparwood.

“To the person who returned Kienan safely, I just want to say thank you. It was the right thing to do,” Hebert said.

“Kienan is happily home, and he’s playing with his brothers and sisters,” Hebert said.

Cpl. Dan Moskaluk said hospital staff examined the 3-year-old, and he was physically unharmed.

Moskaluk also made an appeal to the man police believe abducted Kienan from his home Wednesday.

Moskaluk named 46-year-old Randall Hopley, urging Hopely to turn himself in. “Do the right thing and call us. Call the police.”

Kienan was seen running out of his house and hugging relatives tightly and smiling, looking healthy.

Police believe the suspected abductor brought Kienan back to his house.

There are many questions over how someone could walk back to the home of the crime scene with a 3-year-old and return him without anyone seeing anything unusual at the residence.

Police are not commenting. Asked if they believe Hopley could have brought Kienan back into the house undetected, Moskaluk said yes they believe Hopley brought Keenan back into the house.
