Different Post (Please Help this Little Girl!!!)

She lives in my province, only 35 minutes away from me.This hits Home!!



TROIS-RIVIERES, Que. (CP) - Police are hoping that motorists who passed through the residential area where a nine-year-old girl disappeared a week ago may hold some clues to her whereabouts.

Quebec provincial police officers planned to use checkpoints between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. Tuesday night to question people who may have some information that will help lead them to Cedrika Provencher. They’re hoping somebody may remember seeing something that may help in their investigation.

"These people haven’t yet been sought out and maybe they saw something," said provincial police spokeswoman Isabelle Gendron.

Gendron said drivers may have been on their way to an activity or to a friend’s and seen or heard something they don’t realize is significant.

Police are still not ready to say the nine-year-old was abducted and are saying it’s a missing person case.

Almost 60 detectives have been chasing leads since Quebec provincial police took over the case late last week.

Police believe that Cedrika disappeared shortly after she told two witnesses she was helping a man find his lost dog. Police have also said the man approached three other girls about helping find a lost dog.

Gendron said police haven’t yet been able to release an artist’s sketch of the possible suspect because they don’t haven an adequate description.

"We’re still missing too many details," she said.

Local businesses and charities have collected $50,000 for a reward for key information to solve the case, and to continue the search for the child.

The head of the Missing Children’s Network said in most cases in which a child disappears, it’s usually not the work of a stranger.

"Nine out of 10 times, the perpetrator is known," said executive director Pina Arcamone. "We don’t even talk about the ’stranger’ anymore."

It’s common for a predator to use the "lure" of a lost pet because "they know that young children are very fond of animals" and want to help, she said in an interview.

Arcamone said missing children’s cases are often baffling and it seems that the child has "disappeared off the earth without a trace."

She added that police checkpoints may yield valuable information that people may not even realize they possess.

"This is where the public plays a tremendous, tremendous role," Arcamone said. "It’s really crucial that if someone has seen anything that they come forward."


Some bloggers are thinking that this is a PSA or Spam.Nothing could be further from the truth.

Poor kid *nodding*! Well, let's hope that she may be found! This is a terrible trend, nowadays: kids disappearing one after the other! We have a similar case over here - Madeleine!
