Remains of missing Quebec girl found

WATCH ABOVE: It's been eight years since Cédrika Provencher went for a bike ride in Trois-Rivieres and never came back. After years of efforts to find the girl, police confirmed they found her remains in Mauricie. Howard Cohen reports.


TROIS RIVIERES, Que. – Quebec provincial police have found the remains of a girl who went missing in 2007 when she was nine years old.

Police confirmed late Saturday that human bones discovered Friday evening in Saint-Maurice, near Trois-Rivieres, are those of Cedrika Provencher.

Provencher was last seen on July 31, 2007 near her home in Trois-Rivieres, about halfway between Montreal and Quebec City.

She vanished after reportedly helping a man look for a lost dog.

At one point in the investigation a $100,000 reward was offered for information leading to an arrest.

No arrests have been made, but police say the investigation is ongoing.
