Eyes-Brown Hair- Brown Sex- Female If you have any information concerning the disappearance of Cedrika please contact The Royal Canadian Mounted Police - (877) 318-3576 Family of missing Quebec girl Cedrika Provencher launch foundation TROIS-RIVIERES ? Three years after young Cedrika Provencher disappeared, the family of the Quebec girl launched a foundation Tuesday to help other families looking for missing children. The nine-year-old vanished on July 31, 2007, outside her Trois-Rivieres home, midway between Montreal and Quebec City. A $170,000 reward for information leading to her whereabouts yielded no results. The girl's grandfather, Henri Provencher, said Tuesday the foundation aims to help families grappling with a similar ordeal by offering support and developing new intervention methods. "When a child is kidnapped, we need to act swiftly and efficiently," said Provencher. "Our family went through this nightmare alone, with little support from the authorities and we don't want any other family to go through the same thing," he added. The foundation is also looking for volunteers and donations to provide respite care to families of missing children. For more information: www.fondationcedrikaprovencher.com

Quebec provincial police say they are making progress on their investigation into the death of Cédrika Provencher, the young girl whose remains were found last Friday, eight years after her disappearance.

Sgt. Guy Lapointe told reporters Thursday police have received more than 200 tips from the public since the girl's remains were found.

Lapointe offered few details about what police have uncovered so far, saying he didn't want to compromise the investigation.

"Our absolute priority is to make an arrest, make charges and ultimately get a guilty verdict," he said.

He said they are "satisfied with the search" underway.

He also confirmed that police are still interested in the driver of a red Acura that was seen near where the girl disappeared in Trois-Rivières, Que., in July 2007.

Two months after Cédrika disappeared, police announced they were searching for that car and its driver, a French-speaking man of medium build between age of 30 and 40.

Police believe she was approached by an adult who asked for help to find a missing dog.

No suspect has ever been publicly identified and no one has been arrested in connection with her death.

Police ramped up the search for new evidence after the remains of the girl, who was nine years old at the time she went missing, were discovered Dec. 11 by hunters in a wooded area near Trois-Rivières.

Investigators have set up a command centre at the edge of the woods and have dispatched a crew of specially trained officers to the area.

Lapointe said police will continue to scour the area in the coming days, possibly through the holiday season.

Police intensified the search earlier this week in an effort to gather information while the ground was still clear of snow.

By Wednesday morning, a thin layer of snow had blanketed the crime scene, but Lapointe said the weather wasn't preventing investigators from doing their job.

François Doré, a retired Sûreté du Québec officer who worked on the case, said the discovery of the remains marked "a major step" in the investigation.

He said improved DNA identification methods could help police build a case.

Cédrika was last seen outside near her home, searching for someone's lost dog on a July evening in 2007.

Police say she was approached by an adult who asked for help to find a missing dog. She was never seen again.http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montreal/cedrika-provencher-p
