      According to Surrey RCMP, they were known to frequent Minoru Park in Richmond, and they may have been driving to Alberta.

      Sgt. Chad Greig told the Georgia Straight that investigators do not believe this occurrence to be suspicious.

      Sgt. Greig stated that while investigators aren't worried for the welfare of the children or the family at this time, extended family members are worried about their whereabouts and the lack of contact was an abrupt change from the normal activities for the family.

      He added that investigators are taking all steps to locate the Anderson family to ensure they are fine.

      Anyone who knows of their whereabouts is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online.
