Police Search For Missing 5-Year-Old Ends Tragically

After five days of hopeful searching, the body of 5-year-old Taliyah Marsman was discovered by police just days after her mother Sara Baillie, 34, was found dead in her home.

"Searchers located a body on a rural property east of Chestermere," Canadian police said in a statement, according to PEOPLE. "The exact location of where the body was found will not be released to protect the integrity of the scene."

Authorities charged 46-year-old Edward Downey with two counts of murder in their deaths. He is believed to be an acquaintance of the girl and her mother.

Police issued an Amber Alert after her mother was found dead in her home, and said that witnesses saw a girl who looked like Taliyah with a “stocky black male” who picked her up in a vehicle that matches the description of his car.

The child’s father, Colin Marsman, was hopeful that his daughter was still alive before he body was found.

"I'm waiting for her to come back home and I'm praying," he said. "I believe that I'm going to see her soon, and I just can't wait to see my daughter.
