Looking for a small dog, is often a ploy used by Pedo's. 
Perhaps witnesses or witness did not see a car with a man lurking by.

Quebec police have confirmed that remains found in a wooded area on Friday belong to Cedrika Provencher, a young girl who went missing in 2007.

Police said late Saturday that remains were found near Highway 40 East in Saint-Maurice, Que.

Cedrika was nine years old when she disappeared from her Trois-Rivieres neighbourhood on July 31, sparking a massive search effort from volunteers and police.

At the time, neighbours said the girl had last been seen searching for a stranger's lost dog.

Her bike was discovered later that evening, propped up against a fire hydrant.
Cedrika's father, Martin Provencher, spent years looking for his daughter, saying in a 2008 interview with CTV Montreal that it would be "impossible" for him to give up on his search.

Now, after more than eight years, he finally has some answers.

In a message on Facebook on Sunday, Martin Provencher thanked everyone who helped lead to the discovery.

"You've allowed us to make it past another step in this horrible tragedy," he wrote in French. "Now, we can begin mourning in peace."
 

Cedrika's case sparked widespread interest in the province, and across Canada. It also inspired the creation of the Cedrika Provencher Foundation.
The foundation is dedicated to ensuring Cedrika's story won't be forgotten, and that no other families suffer the same loss.

There have been no arrests in relation to the case, but Quebec police say the investigation into Cedrika's death is ongoing. Police are asking anyone with information to contact them at 1-800-659-4264.

Cédrika Provencher's family members are saying they can finally start mourning after her body was found in Saint-Maurice, near Trois-Rivières, Que.

The Sûreté du Québec announced late Saturday that the remains found in a wooded area belonged to the girl, who went missing in 2007.

Cédrika's father Martin Provencher wrote on Facebook that the family could start mourning. Cédrika's loved ones were informed of the news Saturday.

He thanked everyone for their unwavering support since 2007.

"Without you, we would still be at the same point," wrote Provencher. "You have helped us overcome another step in this horrible tragedy."

The girl was last seen on July 31, 2007, near her home in Trois-Rivières. She was reportedly approached by an adult who asked for help to find a missing dog. She was never seen again.

Cédrika was nine at the time.

'We felt it was related to Cédrika'

A trio of hunters found the girl's remains Friday.

Pascal Lanthier told Radio-Canada that they immediately called police.

"We came to meet my brother and when we saw the skull, we felt it was related to Cédrika Provencher," Pascal Lanthier said.

"I am almost always in the forest. I was absolutely certain, I had a feeling that one day I would find her."

Family starts mourning 'as of today'

Henri Provencher, Cédrika's grandfather, wrote on Facebook that the announcement was painful but he thanked the population for their help over the last eight years.

"You have shown great generosity and solidarity in the tragedy that we have been living," wrote Provencher on the Cédrika Provencher Foundation Facebook page.

Pina Arcamone, director general with Quebec's Missing Children's Network, told Radio-Canada that the family finally had an answer.

"We have a family that will start mourning as of today," Arcamone said.

Arcamone said now is the time for Provencher's loved ones to be able to lay her to rest.

Politicians react

Senator Pierre-Hugues Boisvenu, whose daughter Julie was murdered in 2002, offered his sympathies to the family on Facebook.

"I am convinced that the discovery of the remains of Cédrika is only part of the answer that this family has waited for over the last seven years," wrote Boisvenu.

Boisvenu also called for Quebec to adopt a public registry of convicted sex offenders.

Parti Québécois MNA Alexandre Cloutier wrote on his Facebook page that the news was devastating.

"All of Quebec searched for this little girl," wrote Cloutier.

"We all wished to find her safe and sound. My condolences to the entire family and her loved ones. May she rest in Peace.

Cédrika Provencher, missing since 2007, found dead

The body of Cédrika Provencher, who has been missing since 2007, has been found in Saint-Maurice, near Trois-Rivières, Que.

The Sûreté du Québec, the provincial police force, announced late Saturday that they had recovered human bones and identified them as the remains of Cédrika.

The girl was last seen on July 31, 2007, near her home in Trois-Rivières. She was reportedly approached by an adult who asked for help to find a missing dog. She was never seen again.

She was nine years old at the time.

On Friday afternoon, human remains were found by passersby in a forest on the edge of Hwy. 40 East in Saint-Maurice, the SQ said.

A SQ command post was dispatched to the site, near a service road.

Cédrika's family was informed on Saturday.

For now, there are no arrests but the investigation is continuing, police said.

Cédrika's disappearance caused a shockwave that went beyond the borders of Quebec.

Last June, the production of an investigative documentary on Cédrika's story was announced. Director Stéphan Parent said he wanted to reopen the investigation into her disappearance.
