Amber Alert for two Quebec girls cancelled after bodies found

Quebec provincial police have confirmed two bodies have been found while investigators were searching for the two sisters who were the subject of an Amber Alert.

Police said Saturday (July 11) that it is believed the bodies were of Romy Carpentier, 6, and her sister, Norah Carpentier, 11, but stopped short of confirming the details.

The search for the two young sisters and their father, Martin Carpentier, picked up again Saturday morning in a Quebec City suburb, after an Amber Alert was issued this week.

Earlier in the day, a provincial police spokeswoman said police were hopeful they would find the girls alive.

Martin Carpentier remains missing.

The girls and their father are believed to have been involved in a highway accident Wednesday night in the town of Saint-Apollinaire, south of Quebec City.

Martin Carpentier’s car was found empty after the crash, and police have been searching a wooded, rural area near where it took place.

Mathieu, the police spokeswoman, said that objects were found in the woods during the search.

On Friday, the parner of Martin Carpentier released a statement, urging people to be vigilant as police searched for the trio.

More to come.
