    Hope there is no thread already started on this case but I didn't come up with any in a search. Anyhow this is sad case regarding two missing teens, gone for 8 months at this point:

    "OTTAWA — Laurie Odjick, mother of one of two teen girls missing from the Maniwaki area for almost 8 months, made a renewed plea for help Thursday while announcing that a second co-ordinated search for the girls will take place May 2.

    “I am making a plea for anyone to come down to help us with the search,” Odjick said, struggling through tears, at a press conference at a downtown hotel. "

    Just wanted to bring this thread with no replies to the top. The link provided locked on me before opening. Is there any news on the teens?

    No pictures of the girls.
    The dad was the last to have seen the girls.
    They disappeared while he was away from home one night.
    Their clothing, purses, i.d. left behind.
    Did they go out to a party? Perhaps get involved with the wrong people?
    No. Would have taken their purses.
    Was the apartment searched thoroughly? Forensic evidence done for signs of violence?
    Could something have happened in the apartment to the girls?
    They had a party and things turned ugly?

    The dad was the last one to see them. I would hope he has given a full statement and his alibi verified.

    Information for Volunteers on Search Day for Maisy Odjick and Shannon Alexander Saturday May 2, 2009 at 7:00am*• The Kitigan Zibi Band and Police Department and the families of Maisy and Shannon have requested that Search and Rescue Global 1 (SAR Global 1) help conduct the search for Maisy Odjick and Shannon Alexander who disappeared from the Maniwaki area in September 2008. THANKS FOR COMING TO HELP! YOUR ASSISTANCE IS APPRECIATED! HOWEVER, PLEASE NOTE THAT SEARCHING CAN BE DANGEROUS AND YOU ARE DOING SO AT YOUR OWN RISK. We all hope that the girls will be found safe and sound. However, until that happens, we must search safely, thoroughly and effectively. Here are some things to keep in mind.Basic Requirements• To participate, you MUST be 18 years of age or over.• Please DO NOT BRING: o children – not safe or appropriate; and would be distracting; o dogs; ATVs; firearms; alcohol, etc. Safety• Your priorities are the safety of you, your team members and others.• The slowest member of the team sets the pace.• If you have any serious medical condition (e.g., allergic reactions to bees; knee problems; diabetes; conditions requiring medication, etc.) please talk to your team leader before starting. It will not help the search if you are injured and the team has to stop.What do you need to search?• Sturdy boots or hiking shoes. • Clothing appropriate to the weather conditions (hat; coat; rain coat; work gloves). • Long sleeved shirt and pants.• Eye protection is essential – clear goggles or safety glasses are best.• If possible, dress in layers so you can take off or add layers to keep comfortable. Start with a wicking base layer; then a fleece or warmth layer covered by an outer layer of windproof pants and jackets. • Jeans and cotton t-shirts are definitely not a good idea.• Please bring a small pack sack!• Snacks and water (2 litres) – are really important!!!• Sunscreen, bug repellent; sun glasses; and spare socks.• Broom handle, hockey stick handle or walking stick to move the bushes.How do we search?• We work in teams under a Team Leader who is responsible for the team. • It is very important that you do as asked by the Team Leader. • Make sure you know the names of your team members.• Your Team Leader will brief you on the information that is available, the area you will be asked to search, how the search will be conducted and safety issues (e.g., tripping; slipping; getting a stick in your eye; barbed wire fences, etc.).• In particular, the Team Leader will tell you what to look for and how to search.• The search methods we use have been developed by experts from across North America – they have been proven to work. • Most likely you will be away searching for 3-4 hours at a time walking though very rough ground with thick bush. • So go to the washroom first and take everything you will need in a backpack.• You can not search effectively if you are talking, smoking or not paying full attention. It is hard work. If you need a break, just ask your Team Leader.• Expect to come back tired, sweaty and dirty with some scratches.What are we looking for?• We are always looking for “clues” and, of course, the missing girls.• Clues can be almost anything that looks out of place: o Clothing or shoes; o Personal items; o Bones; o Disturbed soil, mounds of dirt; o Depressions in the ground; o Broken branches; o Strange smells; o Signs of animal activity;What to do if you find something?• Say “stop” and ask your team leader to come and investigate. DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING THAT MAY BE A CLUE.Questions???• If you have any questions during the day, please speak to your Team Leader.• It is possible that media may be at the search. There will be designated spokespersons available. Please refer media back to the Command Post. Thanks again for helping! You are making a difference. Please be careful and remember you are searching at your own risk.* Only one group of 5 will leave at 7am and other groups will leave at various times after that so don't worry if your late. We will welcome any proper volunteer at any time.

    "TUESDAY AUGUST 24, 2009

    September 6th will mark one year since we
    last seen Maisy and Shannon. We will be
    commemorating Sunday September 6th with
    a walk/vigil in Kitigan Zibi."

    In a joint news conference in Ottawa on Thursday, September 3, 2009, Sûreté du Québec, the Ontario Provincial Police, and the Kitigan Zibi police reported that no new information was available regarding the disappearance of the two teenage girls from Maniwaki, Que., but that the investigation is now focused in Ontario.

    The investigation into the disappearance of two teenage girls from Maniwaki, Que., a year ago is now focused in Ontario, police say.
    That's because most of the possible sightings of Maisy Odjick and Shannon Alexander in the past year have been in Ontario, reported the Ontario Provincial Police, the Quebec provincial police and the Kitigan Zibi police at a joint news conference Thursday in Ottawa.

    Without a trace

    Maisy Odjick and Shannon Alexander have been missing from Kitigan Zibi-Maniwaki--north of Ottawa since September 6, 2008. The two girls were residents of KITIGAN ZIBI ANISHINABEG FIRST NATION.

    Quote From the Ottawa Citizen: Missing Without a Trace

    Sept. 6, 2008, 16-year-old Maisy Odjick and her friend Shannon Alexander, 17, disappeared from the Kitigan Zibi-Maniwaki area, about 130 kilometres north of Ottawa. The house where they were last known to be was locked from the outside. There were no signs of forced entry or foul play. The teens left behind wallets, purses, clothes, electronics, identification and even medication.

    9/5/2009 news article:

    'snipped'
    The girls’ parents accuse the Kitigan Zibi police of incompetence. They’ve called the Surete du Quebec, the provincial police force, complacent and racist. (Maisy lived on the reserve; Shannon resided in the nearby town of Maniwaki. It is a joint police investigation.) The parents say the investigation was botched from the start because the provincial police assumed the girls were runaways.

    The provincial police won’t discuss the case. Const. Steve Lalande will say only that police are doing “everything humanly possible”_to find the girls.

    And while that force says the girls ran away, Kitigan Zibi police say they have no such evidence.

    Shannon Alexander is five-foot-nine, weighs about 145 pounds and has brown eyes and short, dark brown hair. She has facial acne, pierced ears and wears a silver necklace with a feather on it.

    Maisy Odjick is described as about six feet tall and weighing 119 to 125 pounds. She has short brown hair, a pierced left nostril and two piercings on her lower lip.

    Both girls are quite tall, would probably stand out in a crowd. Maisy also seems very thin, judging by her height/weight distribution--very model-esque.

    I wonder if there have been any reported sightings anywhere (ex: downtown Ottawa) of anyone resembling the girls. Seems like if they were traveling somewhere together they would easily be noticed/spotted by observant people as most women are usually average height (5'3''-5'7'').

    Any info anywhere on what was going on at home? Problems with family, at school? I get the feeling that the girls walked out on their own...no signs of forced entry at home, no signs of struggle anywhere combined with the fact that there are two of them and both taller women.

    Pics on FB page show Shannon as a cadet, some type of military training group like ROTC here in US...did she have plans to enter military at some point?
