Message for Marilyn Bergeron

I am so honoured to have been invited to prepare a message that will be posted on the website that Marilyn’s family has lovingly created on her behalf.

For the past few years, I have had the privilege of supporting the family in their on-going efforts to locate their missing daughter.  I continue to be impressed by their unwavering commitment and staunch determination to find Marilyn – a need that is just as strong today as the day she first went missing.

Although I have not yet had the pleasure of meeting Marilyn, I somehow feel as though I know her!  Through her mom’s eyes, I have gotten to know the young and vibrant woman that is Marilyn, her passion for life and her great love of music.  To this day, it is hard to comprehend what happened to Marilyn back on February 17, 2008.  What I do know for certain is just how much she is loved and cherished by her family and how deeply she is missed with each passing day.

It is our duty to support the family, so that on those days when it is too much to bear, we may say to them, We will hold you up and we will help you search.  And most importantly, we, as a community, will not stop looking or hoping and will never allow Marilyn to be forgotten.

To each and every one of you who in the past four years have stood by Andrée, Michel, Nathalie, Laurent and baby Laetitia … published an article … aired a special report … interviewed the family … posted search notices in your community … reported a sighting to law enforcement, I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all our tireless efforts.

My final thoughts are for the family … please know that you will always have a special place in my heart. As an organization, we will never stop searching.  It’s time to bring Marilyn back home!

Warmest regards,


Pina Arcamone
