KENAI, Alaska (AP) - A Kenai family of four with two children has been missing for more than a week, and there are no indications of where they have gone, police and relatives said.

The missing family includes Brandon Jividen, 37, his girlfriend Rebecca Adams, 22, and Adams’ two daughters, 5-year-old Michelle Hundley and 3-year-old Jaracca Hundley, The Peninsula Clarion reported (https://bit.ly/1kaLyM9 ).

Relatives of Adams said the family left behind both of their cars, all of their camping and outdoor gear and the car seats for Adams’ daughters. The family’s dog is also missing. They add that the cell phones of Jividen and Adams are turned off.

“I’ve called dozens of times,” said Lanell Adams, who flew to Alaska from Washington state to look for her sister. “I’m scared more than anything.”

Adams said the last contact she had with her sister was distressing. The two women talked on the phone on Memorial Day weekend.

“She sounded very distressed,” Adams said. “She just told me: ‘Know that I love you,’ and she had to get off the phone very quickly.”

Lanell Adams said Rebecca Adams would not tell her what was wrong.

“Growing up we always had this thing . we say ‘Thou shall not lie’ and you always have to tell the truth,” Lanell Adams said. “I asked her, ‘Thou shall not lie, Becca, are you ok?’ She said, ‘Don’t ask me that right now. Just know that I love you.’”

Kenai Police Sergeant Scott McBride said the missing persons report is being investigated.

At this point evidence and testimony is still being gathered by the Kenai Police Department, McBride said.

The family’s relatives and landlord said it was very out of character for the family to be gone for that period of time, without notification.

It’s possible the family just went out of town, and the KPD is looking into it to reassure relatives, McBride said.

For now, the family is trying to spread the word about the missing family via Facebook and by putting fliers up around the central Kenai Peninsula.
