Missing girls headed to BC?

Update -- May 14, 8:15 a.m.

RCMP have issued arrest warrants for a woman believed to have abducted her two daughters, who she does not have legal guardianship for, on Monday.

On Tuesday, RCMP said arrest warrants for Trina Meisel, 48, had been issued for two charges of abduction.

The charges stem from allegations that her daughters, Telisha and Taya Meisel, snuck out of school in Brandt, Alberta – near Vulcan, and met with their mother, Trina Meisel.

Police said Telisha is 12-years-old, has long blond wavy hair and was wearing a turquoise green sweater, a grey striped t-shirt and blue jeans.

Her sister, Taya is 6-years-old, also had long blond wavy hair, and was wearing prescription glasses.

It’s believed the trio would be travelling in a 2007 black Honda CRV, with an Alberta license plate ORNRSE.

RCMP said there are no concerns for the safety of the children; it’s believed they could be headed to Saskatchewan or Vancouver Island, British Columbia.

Authorities say sisters that were taken by their biological mother from a Vulcan, Alberta school may be headed to Vancouver Island or Saskatchewan.

Telisha and Taya Meisel, six and 12, snuck out of school Monday morning to meet with their biological mother, say Alberta RCMP.

Trina Meisel, 48, doesn’t have legal guardianship of the children.

The trio are believed to be driving in a 2007 black Honda CRV with the Alberta license plate ORNRSE.

Investigators say the girls aren’t in trouble but it’s believed they are on their way to B.C. or Saskatchewan.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Vulcan RCMP detachment at 403-485-2266 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
