Cedrika Provencher

Cedrika Provencher

(born August 29, 1997), Provencher disappeared aged 9 on July 31, 2007. Her disappearance resulted in one of the biggest police searches in Quebec's history.

Trois-Rivieres, Quebec - Cedrika Provencher was declared "missing" on July 31, 2007 (but some media already believed that she was kidnapped), and "likely abducted" 72 hours later.

Despite the offer of a reward, her whereabouts remained unknown for more than eight years.

On December 12, 2015, Quebec provincial police (SQ) announced that her remains had been found by hunters in a woody area not far from Trois-Rivieres. No one has been charged in relation to her death.

Early in the search, witnesses reported her asking for help finding a man's lost dog. Four other girls also came forward to report that a stranger had asked for their help tracking down a dog.

She cycled around the area, knocking on doors and asking residents if they had seen the dog.

She was seen emerging from a wooded area with a friend, closely followed by a man. She was then seen on her bike in a local park and on various nearby streets. At 8:30 pm, her bicycle was found leaning against a fire hydrant on the corner of streets Chabanel and Chapais.

On August 2, 2007, 72 hours later, municipal officers suggested that she had been abducted, even though it was already known since day one that a man asked her about a dog.

On December 11, 2015, three hunters stumbled upon a set of human remains in the woods in Saint-Maurice, a small town near Trois-Rivieres close to Highway 40, about 15km from the last place Cedrika had been seen.

This case remains unsolved.

For those grieving the loss of a loved one.. It is life's most painful challenge. You are not alone. God is with you. Find strength and comfort on your darkest days with this prayer for loss.

Many unsolved here in BC. A lot of these crimes happened a long time ago... Most of the victims don't get found, some get found but not right away and evidence is completely lost. Sad!

- Tristan W. (Vancouver, B.C.)

What is really important for these families is to know that as Canadians, is that we remember these murdered or missing people and keep our eyes and ears open.

- Sarah M. (Kamloops, B.C.)

What really happend to Franklin Shoofey, shot and killed outside his Montreal law office on Cherrier St?

- Janvier S. (Montreal, QC)

I am following up on a possible homicide investigation dating back to June 15, 2005. The body of Angus McLeod Stirling was found in a residence at 5456 Vedder Road. I lost touch with the conclusion of this incident. I was a previous neighbour when I lived in Chilliwack.

In 1982 a man claiming to be a professional race car driver talked his way into NASCAR's Winston 500 and then disappeared, leaving a trail of bounced checks and confused victims in his wake. This is the story of L. W. Wright: NASCAR's Mystery Driver. How about a non-violent sports mystery?

- Bacary T. (Windsor, ON)

Some unsolved crimes here in Thompson still have an investigation going on. We know that sometimes these investigations might take too long but the pressure must go on for justice!

- Kerrick A. (Thompson, MB)

Hi there, I've grown up and lived in south okanagan for many years, I also remember in the North okanagan a young man associated with a VW car ,maybe selling it? Went missing, north of Vernon. The okanagan is a nice place but it attracts many criminal types.

- Sharon J. (South Okanagan, B.C.)

My kids father has gone missing for over a year. We have two children together. It isn't like him to not show up for the kids. His car was found abandoned. His car on and door open in Cheekeye. The police did not search for him then but took his car cause the keys were in it anx it was still running with him no where in sight. His name is Daniel Lee Reoch and he would be 30 now and turning 31 this year in March. He was declared missing January 7th I believe. I just want to put his story out there in hopes we can find some answers. SAR and RCMP and also family friends and the community did a ground search but it snowed so hard.

So sad that still there is no updates on Mary Hammond!! Missing since 80s from Brantford, Ont.

- Patrick M. (Milton, ON)

Any information about Angie Hartmann? Angela a high school student has been missing since 1983 from Ottawa. There seems to be very little information available in this case. All I could find is an Ottawa Sun article from 2003, basically the only contact anyone has had with someone involved with Angela is a boyfriend she had briefly in early 1983 in Germany, who gave what information he had to the Doe Network.

- Nicole H. (Ottawa, ON)

It is unbelievable how many unsolved murders in Canada, especially in northern BC. May all R.I.P. They will never be forgotten.

- Lisa V. (Prince Rupert, B.C.)

I hope many of these cases will be solved. Families want justice or closure.

- Anna V. (Vancouver, B.C.)

My nephew has been missing for 12 years now but we have never given up. We are hoping and hoping!!

- Ernest H. (Winnipeg, MB)

I sometimes think that some unsolved cases are not really unsolved. They have been solved but no enough evidence to convict the perpetrator.

- Julie N. (Toronto, ON)

We lost our lovely daughter. Disappeared mysteriously 14 years ago in Calgary. She was 11 years old. This case is still unsolved today. Please keep the word out. We hope that she is somewhere... Alive!
