The Federal Bureau of Investigations has joined the Kenai Police Department in the search for a Kenai family last seen nearly two weeks ago.

Brandon Jividen, his girlfriend Rebecca Adams and her two children Michelle Hundley and Jaracca Hundley were last seen on May 27 at their apartment near Chugach Avenue in Kenai. Their dog is also missing. Both of their cars were left behind, said Audre Gifford, Adams’ cousin.

Along with FBI agents, the Alaska Search and Rescue Dogs and the Mat-Su Search and Rescue Dogs have joined the ground search. The Alaska State Troopers have dispatched a helicopter to search from the air.

Investigators are working together to locate the family of four, according to a press release from Lt. David Ross with the Kenai police.

Anyone who lives in the area of Wildwood Drive, California Street, First Street and Second Street in Kenai and has seen anything suspicious over the last couple weeks is asked to share the information.

“At this point we don’t know what may have happened to the family or where they are, but we are using a number of investigative techniques with the assistance of the FBI, and we are hoping to locate the family as soon as possible,” Ross said.

Authorities have asked anyone with information or recent interactions with the missing persons to contact the Kenai Police Department at 283-7879.
