Amber Alert issued for 3-month-old Langley baby

Tyler Durocher, 3 months old, last seen with Brianne Darlene Ford

UPDATE 8:30 a.m. Friday, April 5

Police had no new information about the whereabouts of missing Tyler Durocher, the three-month-old who was the subject of an Amber Alert the evening of Thursday, April 4.

Langley RCMP were planning to provide some updates as of Friday, but had not located the child.

The search Thursday night was extensive, with Central Fraser Valley Search and Rescue setting up a command post on the corner of 72nd Avenue and 208th Street, in the area where Durocher and Brianne Darlene Ford, the woman believed to have taken him, were last seen.

Search and rescue personnel in red high-visibility clothing set off from there on foot into the surrounding neighbourhood.

The area to the north of the intersection is being redeveloped, and many lots have vacant or recently demolished houses due to ongoing road widening. There are vacant sheds, wooded areas, boarded up homes, and abandoned trailers.

A crew of searchers was seen entering one boarded up house and searching it and the surrounding yard with flashlights at about 9 p.m. on Thursday.
