Array

EDMONTON — Authorities in Edmonton have issued an Amber Alert for three children.

They say the boys — who are two, eight and nine — were abducted from a north Edmonton home at 9:45 a.m. on Friday.

Police are looking for Leonard Hutchinson, 50, who is described as being Caucasian, standing about six-foot-one and weighing 300 pounds.

He is bald and believed to be wearing a grey shirt, grey pants with suspenders and glasses.

He and the children were last seen in a 2002 Red Kia Sedona license plate BPB 6141.

It’s believed the minivan is heading west from Edmonton and that Hutchinson may be with an aboriginal woman with long dark hair.

The alert says two of the children have the same last name, and police haven’t given the last name of the third.

Jeremy, who is two, has curly blond hair and is three-feet-six-inches tall.

Eight-year-old Andrew Hutchinson has short, dark, messy hair and stands four-foot-two, and nine-year-old Damien Hutchinson has light-brown short hair and is also four-feet-two inches tall.
