BC Amber Alert deactivated – Mother in custody and children are safe

The BC RCMP can confirm that BC Amber Alert was de-activated at 5:20
p.m. as Trina MEISEL, 12 year old Talisha and 6 year old Taya have just
been located in the Lower Mainland.

With the assistance of public tips and information, police were able to
locate them in Boston Bar, BC and all three were taken in police custody
and care without issue.

48 year old Trina MEISEL has been arrested in connection with 2 counts
of Abduction under section 282(1) of the Criminal Code.

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

BC RCMP investigators also continue to work with Major Crime
investigators in southern Alberta with respect to their investigation.

We would like to thank the media and the public for their assistance.
Everyone has been located as a direct result of public and media support
and the BC Amber Alert program.
