CALGARY (660 NEWS) — A forensic unit has been combing through a townhouse in the middle of a complex in a quiet family neighbourhood in Calgary.
Children’s toys are scattered in the gated front yard at the Cranston home, where neighbours say a woman, man and a child lived. Over the past few days, it has become a crime scene. Police were seen towing a vehicle from the home’s garage several days ago.

A neighbour across the street who wished to remain anonymous said he saw flashlights inside the home several days ago, when police were still treating disappearance of Jasmine Lovett and her child as a missing persons case.
“Always seeing somebody at the entrance or right by the area near the house that they are searching,” Tolga, another neighbour, said on Thursday. “This morning, of course was a bit more with the investigation truck and they’ve been searching the house and I saw them tow a vehicle from a garage — from the house they are looking into.”
Police announced that they now suspect Lovett and 22-month-old Aliyah Sanderson may have been killed, but their bodies are nowhere to be found.
Calgary Police have not been able to locate the pair since they were last seen on April 16. Investigators haven’t found any evidence that Jasmine and Aliyah are alive.
Jasmine is 25 years old. She is described as 5’4″ with a slim build, brown hair, and brown eyes.
Aliyah is 22 months old. She is about 3’0″ with brown eyes and brown hair.
The two were last seen in Cranston on April 16, with the last activity on Jasmine’s bank account being on April 18.
Investigators do have a suspect in custody for questioning and do not believe the incident is random as the suspect and victims knew each other.
