Vulcan RCMP believe the Meisel sisters may have been abducted by their mother on May 12.

Vulcan, Alberta – On May 12, 2014, at approximately 10:45 a.m., Vulcan RCMP Detachment officers were dispatched to an elementary school in the hamlet of Brandt near Vulcan, Alberta to investigate what appears to be a parental abduction. Officers were informed that the two sisters, Telisha and Taya MEISEL would have snuck out of school and met with their biological mother, Trina MEISEL, a 48-year-old woman who does not have legal guardianship of the children.

Telisha MEISEL is 12 years old, long blond wavy hair and wearing a turquoise green sweater, a grey striped t-shirt and blue jeans, and Taya MEISEL, six years old, also has long blond wavy hair and wearing prescription glasses.
