BATHURST, N.B. — Police in northern New Brunswick have resumed the search for a 14-year-old girl who has been missing for more than two months.
The Bathurst Police Force said Wednesday in a news release it had launched aerial searches with the RCMP in hopes of finding Madison Roy-Boudreau.
Police last held aerial searches for the girl on July 23, when they scanned the northeastern parts of the city.
Madison was reported missing on May 11 by her father, who watched her leave for school that morning. She never returned home.
Police have said she got into a grey Ford Ranger pickup later that morning, and the driver of that truck was arrested May 13. Two weeks later, police said her disappearance had become a criminal investigation.
Bathurst residents have criticized police for failing to provide them with information about the investigation.
In early June, residents held a neighbourhood walk in her honour. Jeannie Ferron helped organize that event and told The Canadian Press at the time she hoped the walk showed local forces that the community wouldn't stop looking for Madison or seeking answers about her disappearance.
Police are asking anyone with information about the case to contact them.
