Watch below (April 27): Forensics teams were back on scene in Calgary Saturday, searching a Cranston townhouse believed to be connected to the disappearances of Jasmine Lovett and Aliyah Sanderson. As Jenna Freeman reports, the family of the missing pair is pleading for the public to come forward with any information in the case.

Since news of Lovett and Sanderson’s disappearances broke earlier this week, crews have been searching the Bragg Creek area and a Cranston house in connection with the case.

However, police called off the search late Saturday morning due to poor and changing weather conditions.

A condo in Cranston was still being held by police Sunday morning.

Investigators believe the man was in the Fullerton Loop and Elbow Falls area on April 18 between 2:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.

The man may have been alone or with either of the victims and may have been carrying mulch in his vehicle, police said.
