[UPDATED] AMBER ALERT — Taliyah Leigh Marsman, Age 5, Abducted in Calgary

A 5 year old child in Calgary, Alberta was reported missing at 1:21 AM this morning.

LATEST UPDATE, 10:00 PM, July 14, 2016 — I write you this dark evening with the absolute most heavy of hearts.
5 year old Taliyah Marsman will not be celebrating her sixth birthday.
The Calgary Police Department are confident that they’ve located Taliyah’s body earlier this evening, and two first-degree murder charges will be given to their expected killer, Edward Downey.

To Taliyah and Sara, may you both rest in eternal peace.
To the friends and family of the deceased, our thoughts are with you through these tragic times.
To Edward, I hope you suffer for what you’ve done. This is inhumane, and you’ve caused national grief.

OLDER UPDATE 12:00 PM — “Please if you have Taliyah, please, let her come home to her family.” — Terry-Lynn; Taliyah’s aunt

She’s taller and more mature than your average 5 year old.

Taliyah’s name is pronounced ‘Taa-li-ah.’

Friends, family, Taliyah’s mother, Sarah’s co-workers, and Taliyah’s care giver all make an appearance at a conference about Sarah’s passing and Taliyah’s disappearance.
