Update #2: Missing Persons Investigation

Calgary Police Service

The Calgary Police Service continues to investigate the suspicious disappearance of three people and are seeking the public’s help for any information.

Investigators are asking anyone who attended an estate sale at the residence in the 100 block of 38A Avenue S.W., over the weekend, June 28 – 29, 2014, to come to the Parkhill Community Centre tomorrow, Thursday, July 3, 2014. Investigators will be on hand between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m., to speak to anyone who attended the sale.

Investigators are asking anyone who purchased an item at the sale to please bring a photo of that item to the community hall meeting. This will aid the investigation to determine what items were purchased during the sale, compared to what items remain in the home.

The Parkhill Stanley Park Community Hall is located at 4013 Stanley Road S.W.

Investigators are also able to clarify that five-year-old Nathan O’Brien has brown eyes, not blue as earlier reported.

Nathan’s mom and his younger sibling had been at the residence assisting with the estate sale Sunday afternoon. Nathan’s mom left the residence with her youngest child around 10 p.m., leaving Nathan to have a sleepover with his grandparents.

Additional photos of Alvin and Kathryn LIKNES can be found on The City of Calgary Newsroom.

Update - Missing person investigation

The Calgary Police Service continues to investigate the suspicious disappearance of three people from the southwest.

At approximately 10 a.m., on Monday, June 30, 2014, police were called to an address in the 100 block of 38A Avenue S.W., by a mother who attended the address to collect her five-year-old son. The son was staying at that location with his grandparents.

The child and both grandparents were not at the residence and have not been located since.

Evidence found at the residence suggests the disappearance of all three family members may be suspicious.

Several units from across the Service are now involved in the investigation and search for the missing trio but continue to appeal for information from the public.

Since the Amber Alert was issued, police have received numerous calls. Investigators are now working through those, but at this time there does not appear to be any significant leads.

The Forensic Crime Scene Unit has returned to the residence this morning, Tuesday, July 1, 2014, to continue the search for any clues that would explain the disappearance.

Officers have also conducted neighbourhood enquiries, a grid search of the vicinity and interviewed numerous family members and associates of the family.

It has been determined that the family held an Estate Sale at their address over the weekend. Although it is too early to determine if this had any role to play in their disappearance, police would like to hear from anyone who attended the sale.

The following individuals remain missing:

Nathan O’Brien, 5, is described as Caucasian, approximately 3’ tall, with blond, curly hair, and blue eyes. He was last seen wearing peach-coloured shorts and a striped blue hoodie.

Alvin Cecil LIKNES, 66, is Caucasian, 6’ tall, 200 pounds, with a slim build, and grey/blond hair.

Kathryn Faye LIKNES, 53, is Caucasian, 5’3” tall, 120 pounds, with red/brown hair and green eyes.

Photos of all three missing persons are available on The City of Calgary Newsroom.

Police are asking anyone with information about this case to call 403-266-1234 or Crime Stoppers anonymously using any of the following methods:
