The search for evidence in the case of a Calgary family believed dead now includes more eyes and technology in the sky.

Calgary police have partnered with the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) in the search at and around a rural property in Airdrie.

The search is related to the disappearance of Calgary couple, Alvin and Kathryn Liknes, and their five-year-old grandson Nathan O’Brien.

Though their bodies have not been located, police have said they have evidence indicating the three were killed.

Since July 4, police have been searching the acreage where accused killer Douglas Garland lives as well as surrounding rural areas.

On Saturday, cops said they’ve partnered with NRC in order to use the federal government organization’s equipment in their search.
