Here is the latest news on the case:

Quebec provincial police are ramping up their search for evidence in the case of Cédrika Provencher, the nine-year-old who went missing in 2007 and whose remains were found in a wooded area Friday.

About 100 officers are combing a section of Saint-Maurice, near Trois-Rivières, this morning where her skull was found by hunters.

Sûreté du Québec director general Martin Prud’homme said late Sunday the case had “progressed” since the discovery but wouldn’t offer any specifics about the investigation.

No one has been arrested in connection with Cédrika’s death.

Cédrika went missing 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.

On Sunday, Cédrika’s father, Martin Provencher, wrote on Facebook the family could start mourning at last, thanking everyone for their unwavering support since she disappeared. 

“You have helped us overcome another step in this horrible tragedy.”

The Sûreté du Québec is asking anyone with information to call 1-800-659-4264.
