Vanished While Out On Her Bike
UCF #104200156 Location: Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, Canada File: Disappearance of Cedrika Provencher Status: UNSOLVEDContributor: Adama N.
File Number: 104200156 Cedrika Provencher (born 29 August 1997), disappeared aged 9 on 31 July 2007. Her disappearance resulted in one of the biggest police searches in Quebec's history. She was declared "missing" on 31 July 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 12 December 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 2 August 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 11 December 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.
