    Canada - Valerie Xavier, 80, Brockville ON, 26 Sept 2010

    Search intensifies for missing woman, 80

    Last Updated: 1 hour ago

    BROCKVILLE — The search for a missing 80-year-old Brockville woman intensified Wednesday afternoon, with OPP divers searching the Back Pond and a Brockville youth, arrested in Ottawa in possession of the woman's vehicle, appearing in court here.

    As first reported on the Recorder and Times website, city police first sought the public's help on Tuesday in locating Valerie Xavier, 80, who was last heard from at home, at 820 Laurier Boulevard, on Sunday at 8 p.m.

    On Monday, Ottawa police found and seized Xavier's vehicle in that city and arrested a 16-year-old Brockville male who was in possession of it, police revealed Wednesday.

    The youth was taken to Brockville, where he appeared in court and was released on bail.

    On Tuesday, city police asked for help from the Ontario Provincial Police, who brought in their emergency response team and helicopter, which could also be seen over Brockville on Wednesday.

    Both the city police and OPP canine units were in Brockville Wednesday afternoon conducting a search. An OPP underwater search and recovery unit from Gravenhurst arrived on Wednesday afternoon and checked the Mac Johnson Wildlife Area off McLarry Road, just north of the city limits.

    A few hours later, they called off the pond search, after finding nothing, said OPP Sgt. Kristine Rae. They continued to search the forested area near the back pond for clues.

    From that article it says that the youth and Ms Xavier are "known to each other" but wouldn't elaborate on how they know each other. Grandson?

    This doesn't look good.

    Neighbours say the woman had recently opened up her apartment to a teenager who needed a place to stay.
    No 'proof' that this is the same teenager, but that would be my guess.

    Missing woman believed dead
    Fri Oct 1, 6:04 AM

    Police detectives believe that Valerie Xavier, an 80-year-old widow reported missing on Sunday, is dead, and the prime suspect in the case is a 16-year-old boy arrested in Ottawa on Monday and charged with stealing the elderly woman’s car and credit card, the Citizen has learned.

    Brockville Police and Ontario Provincial Police spent Thursday searching for Xavier’s body in a wildlife conservation area north of her Brockville condominium. They used a helicopter, K-9 units and a police dive team in the search, which as of mid-evening was still unsuccessful.

    A few months ago, Xavier, a longtime private home care worker for seniors, took in the youth as a boarder and, according to her family, had not had any known problems with him.

    On the last day she was seen alive — Sunday for breakfast at her son’s place
    — she seemed to be in good spirits as she said goodbye and began the drive back to her home on Laurier Boulevard in Brockville.

    However, when she still couldn’t be contacted at 8 p.m. Sunday, family members began to worry. Her condo was empty and her car was gone. She was reported missing and police bulletins were issued.

    The car was spotted Monday by Ottawa police, who also found stolen items, including Xavier’s credit card.

    The boy was arrested on charges of theft over $5,000.

    The boy was questioned by police in the presence of his parents, but didn’t give any information about the whereabouts of Xavier.

    “Miss Xavier” (80)
    always one to lend a hand,
    even to strangers.
    From same article posted above:
    The police investigation has led detectives to Mac Johnson Wildlife Area, just north of Brockville’s city limits. Xavier’s condo has also been secured by police, who are treating it as a crime scene as detectives work on what they call a no-body homicide case while continuing the search for the body of Xavier.
    RS&BBM

    IMO, this pretty much means LE found evidence in her home that she is no longer alive

    Provincial Police probing a missing persons' case have shifted attention to properties that border a major thoroughfare.

    Officers combed an area near Highway 416's Hunt Club interchange.

    Could be a teenage friend of the tenant who is (also) a teenager.

    I'm going to try (it's worth the attempt right?) to remain hopeful this now POI is NOT the teenager Valerie opened her home to.
    Don't believe EVERYTHING you think.

    Pleasse let her be found safe. Such a shame if this 16 year old is responisble

    OPP Sgt. Kristine Rae said the search is taking place "along" the 416 and specifically at Hunt Club Rd.


    "We're looking for anything that might assist in the investigation," she said.

    who is this kid and why would she take in a 16 year old unless he's related?

    and whether or not he's related, there had to be problems to begin with that made it necessary for him to live somewhere else than with his parents ...

    so why was that burden placed on an 80 year-old woman?!

    other people had to have known of the arrangement - maybe they thought it would be mutually beneficial - that a 16 year old could help her with chores etc...
