Police have obtained a warrant to return two suspects to Nova Scotia to be charged after they were found in Ontario, allegedly with the car of missing woman Loretta Saunders.

Blake Leggette, 25, and 28-year-old Victoria Henneberry were arrested on Wednesday in Harrow, Ont., near Windsor, on outstanding warrants, possessing stolen property and fraud-related charges.

Also on Wednesday, police started to search Saunders's Halifax apartment for any information about what happened to her.

Saunders hasn't been since Feb. 13 and hasn't had contact with her family since Feb. 14, police said.

Saunders, reportedly three months pregnant, has been writing a thesis on missing and murdered aboriginal women.

Her family and friends have taken to social media to aid in their search with the hashtag #findloretta and a Facebook group, and are crowdfunding money to get family from Newfoundland and Labrador to Halifax.

Const. Pierre Bourdages, with Halifax Regional Police, said Saunders knows Leggette and Henneberry.
