​'It's absolutely crazy'

The father of the girls, ages 13 and 15, has said his daughters and their mother were having breakfast Monday morning with another couple when they decided to have some tea recently brought back from a trip overseas.

The father said the tea was from India, but the family that was allegedly kidnapped said one of the accused had travelled earlier in the year to Thailand and South Korea.

"It's absolutely crazy," said the father, who cannot be named due to a court publication ban protecting the identity of youths involved in the case.

"It's a scary thought thinking, 'Oh, let's try this tea that we purchased.' And then all sit down thinking they're just going to have a nice morning and end up in that circumstance."

He said the girls don't remember what happened.

The Mounties have not said if they're investigating whether a hallucinogenic tea motivated the alleged crime but have said drugs and/or alcohol may have played a role.

Ariel Winter Would 'Love' to Double Date with Sarah Hyland and Wells Adams .
Ariel Winter and Sarah Hyland play sisters on Modern Family and are nearly as close off-screen. So would the two actresses consider a double date with Winter’s boyfriend Levi Meaden and Hyland’s beau Wells Adams? “That would be pretty fun,” Winter, 19, told Entertainment Tonight from the set of her ABC show’s 200th episode celebration in Los Angeles on Wednesday. “I’d love it.” Hyland, 26, seems to be down with it too — though she’s taking a little time to introduce Adams, a Bachelorette alum, to her TV tribe. “These people have become my real-life family. It’s almost like, you gotta,” Hyland said. “Like, for guys, you have to meet the parents, which is stressful. But then I think the more stressful thing is to meet the second family, which is not only the Dunphy family but the entire cast, and the entire crew and all of our writers, and everybody that’s involved.” She added, “That’s the second family that I think is the most terrifying thing for guys that I date.” Julie Bowen, who plays Hyland’s TV mother, may not have met Adams yet but she told ET she “thought he was cute.” “She just showed me pictures and the original sort of flirty texts that were very sweet,” Bowen revealed. “And there was nothing naked about them so… I’m a little old fashioned and I liked that. I was like, ‘Ooh I like this.’ Because sometimes these days when somebody shows you their phone you’re like, ‘Ahhh!’ … This was just normal and cute, and I liked it.
