Family of four goes missing in British Columbia

Police in British Columbia are searching for a family of four who have not been seen for several days. They say there is no reason to believe the disappearance is suspicious or that any of the family members are at risk.

RCMP Sgt. Chad Greig says police received a call from an extended family member who was worried about the Anderson family.

The family has not been seen since Sunday, although they did speak with a relative Monday via telephone. Surveillance footage from Tuesday afternoon shows their minivan leaving their apartment building.

“It was an abrupt change from the norm of the family routine,” according to Grieg.

Police canvassed the family’s apartment building on Thursday. Police say the family may be headed to Alberta.

The family includes 45-year-old Nona Anderson, 43-year-old Sheldon Anderson, 13-year-old Chanel Anderson and 10-year-old Mariah Anderson.

Their vehicle is a tan 2002 Toyota Sienna minivan with Alberta licence plate number BGZ 2221.

Surrey RCMP are asking anyone who might have spotted the Andersons or the van to give them a call.
