Letter by Pina Arcamone (The Missing Children’s Network)

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

Letter by Marilyn’s parents


The beauty of life
Sustains me
Without it,
My heart would have stopped
The helpless wait
Gives me an extra day
A day of hope and more
Until dark

The wait burdens my sleep
I’m afraid to fall asleep
Afraid of missing something from Her
I guess and dream of her return
Images are revealed,
Her pretty face paled by the time smiles at me

Under its chilly rays
I watch the moon
In the silence of the moment
I hear a voice
That of my Daughter, my Child
Her words, her words are lost
In the illusion of my thoughts

What would I not give?
My life may be
For the magic of one moment
One breath of love
In which she wakes
The memory of a spoken sentence

Come back … I beg you!
Give us your news! What happened to you?


Wherever you are Mary… Despite the four years that separate us, the hope continues to nourish our hearts. Never forget that you can always count on us, you know. No matter what! …We will never abandon you. We are very worried, we do not know anything about you.

Your departure left us deeply shocked and surrounded by sadness.

We miss you Marilyn. You are missed by everyone in your family!

When will we be able to finally hold you in our arms?
We badly need to hear your voice ….Please try to communicate with us… Anytime, we will be there!

Your parents (mom and dad), who love you and only want your happiness and your return!
