Original story:

Alberta RCMP are looking for two 12-year-old children believed to have started driving from Alberta to B.C. on Monday.

Innisfail and Red Deer RCMP are asking for the public’s help to find Rhianna Pelletier and Nicolas Givotkoff.

In the wee hours of Monday morning, police said, Givotkoff travelled to Innisfail. He and Pelletier left Innisfail with a family vehicle described as a dark blue Chevrolet Cavalier.

RCMP believe the 12-year-olds drove themselves.

Their vehicle was found in Airdrie, but the children have not been located up to this point.
