Aliyah Sanderson, who was 22 months old, and her mother, Jasmine Lovett, had not been seen since April 16 and were reported missing a week later after they failed to show up for a family dinner.

Officers say the bodies were found in a heavily wooded area near Grizzly Creek, located off Highway 40 in Kananaskis Country, a wilderness area on the eastern edge of the Rockies.

Police say the cause of death of both victims is not expected to be released.
