MONTREAL – A vigil in memory of Cedrika Provencher was held Saturday afternoon in Trois-Rivières’ Chapais Park, where the little girl was seen for the last time on July 31, 2007.

She was 9 years old when she went missing and was last seen being asked by an adult to help search for his lost dog.

The gathering took place as investigators with the Sûreté du Québec continued searching the heavily wooded area in Saint-Maurice, where Cedrika’s remains were found a week ago.
