MONTREAL — A Quebec mother hoping for closure in her toddler’s disappearance 36 years ago has been left disappointed.
Montreal police say the search of a parking lot for the remains of her 18-month old daughter Yohanna has yielded nothing.
Lead investigator Marie-Julie Durand says the case will remain open but that police have gone as far as they can for now.
Earlier today, Liliane Cyr said she wanted to find out once and for all what happened to her child, who has been missing since 1978.
Cyr left the scene disappointed after standing vigil in the parking lot while police searched.
Police dug in two specific spots identified by engineering students who used sophisticated tracking equipment earlier this year.
They were looking for a metal box they believed might contain the girl’s remains.
