    Canada - Natasha Cournoyer, 37, Laval QC, 1 October 2009

    Natasha Cournoyer, 37, hasn’t been seen since her image was last picked up on surveillance footage outside the office building about 8 p.m. at Place Laval, where she works in the communications department for Corrections Canada. According to Laval police, she was walking toward her car. Cameras don’t go beyond the building’s perimeter to the lot where Cournoyer’s charcoal Mazda6 was parked.<snipped>

    Laval police set up a second command post Tuesday morning to help in their search for Natasha Cournoyer, the 37-year-old communications worker for Corrections Canada who has been missing since Thursday about 8 p.m.

    The second mobile command post will start at 8 a.m. Tuesday at the Loblaws at de la Concorde Blvd. and Highway 19, Laval police Constable Natalie Lorrain said. The reason for choosing this location is that the signal from Cournoyer’s cellphone was detected by a cell tower there on Friday morning, the day after she went missing, Lorrain said.

    Police said they would continue their command post at Place Laval, about three kilometres away, where Cournoyer works and where she was last seen.<snipped>

    I hope she is found safe. I wonder if she was targeted by someone because of her job?

    “She must have been abducted,” Trottier said. “That’s the only scenario I can imagine, because if it were anything else, she would have at least called her mother.”

    “We don’t want to know who these people are, but they have a chance now to correct the mistake they made and free her,” Trottier said.

    It always makes me wonder when a close one automatically assumes there has been a kidnapping of an adult. Too early to tell right now, but...

    Woman's body found in east-end Montreal

    Police are gathering near the shore of Montreal's Saint-Lawrence River where the body of a woman was found on Tuesday.

    The body was discovered near Notre-Dame Street and 36e Avenue in Pointe-aux-Trembles, in Montreal's east end, just before noon.

    Police are calling the unidentified woman's death suspicious.

    Laval investigators are still searching for Natasha Cournoyer, 37, who vanished Oct. 1 from a parking lot at her federal agency office.

    Montreal police said it was too early to connect the two cases.

    That is a fair distance and right beside the St. Lawrence river.

    Missing woman slain, police speculate

    <snipped>
    Major crimes investigators believe a woman's body found Tuesday next to a dirt road in Pointe aux Trembles is that of Natasha Cournoyer, a Laval resident who disappeared Thursday, three police sources familiar with the investigation said yesterday.

    As of early this morning, investigators had not been able to confirm the victim's identity. Laval police, who are probing Cournoyer's disappearance, were called in to assist.

    One person who could help identify Cournoyer, 37, was brought to the scene shortly after the body was discovered, just before noon yesterday.

    According to this article her boyfriend has confirmed her death. It is in french, here is a Babel Fish translation:

    The spouse of Natasha Cournoyer, Michel Trottier, confirms the death of the latter, and this, even if the authorities did not do it yet. In a letter published on his Facebook page, Mr. Trottier affirms this morning that its joint died. “I try to include/understand how one could remove you what we have of so invaluable, that is to say the life. (...) To take the life of such a pretty woman with so much of violence, which cowardice, which wretched way to live”, written Mr. Trottier.

    In the same article:
    Michel Trottier was scheduled to undergo a polygraph test on Wednesday but because of his (emotional) state the test was postponed.

    Police:
    We are waiting for the autopsy results.

    Body is likely Natasha Cournoyer's: cops

    Montreal police say there's every reason to believe that a body found next to a dirt road in the east end is that of corrections worker Natasha Cournoyer.

    Cournoyer's boyfriend, Michel Trottier, has made several pleas on television and radio for her safe return.

    He told The Canadian Press that his relationship with Cournoyer was on and off, and that they have parted several times during their four-year relationship.

    Police don’t believe her work is related to her disappearance, since she works on writing newsletters and organizing events, and has no contact with inmates.
