Statement by Jeff Liknes, son of Alvin and Kathryn Liknes:

“My family and I would like to sincerely thank the Calgary police and all the many people who have offered their kindness and support during this difficult time.

We ask that anyone who was at the sale on the weekend, please go to the community hall meeting tomorrow, or contact the police.

Mom, Dad, we want you to know that we love you so much and we are doing everything we can to get you home safely.

Please continue to pray for the safe return of our parents, Alvin and Kathy Liknes, and our nephew Nathan O’Brien. “

Nathan O'Brien was reported missing Monday morning when his mother went to pick him up after a sleepover at the grandparents' southwest Calgary home and they weren't there.

Police say based on things they found in the home, they don't believe the residents left voluntarily.

Investigators said they want to speak with anyone who attended an estate sale at the grandparents' home on the weekend.

The pair were selling their things as they planned a move to Mexico.

Nathan O'Brien is described as three feet tall, curly blonde hair, brown eyes, and was last seen wearing peach-coloured shorts and a blue-striped hoodie.

Alvin Liknes is six feet tall, 200 pounds with grey and blond hair and was wearing black shorts. Alvin has a distinctive walk.

Kathryn Liknes is five-foot-three-inches tall, 120 pounds with reddish-brown hair and green eyes.

Anyone with information about the case should phone police at 403-266-1234 or call Crime Stoppers.
