ST-APOLLINAIRE, Que — Quebec provincial police continued to search through the night for the father of two girls whose bodies were found Saturday in a small town southwest of Quebec City.
The bodies of Norah and Romy Carpentier, aged 11 and 6, were located in a wooded area in the community of St-Apollinaire, Que.
The girls had last been seen on Wednesday and became the subject of an Amber Alert the next day.
On Sunday, the manhunt for their father, Martin Carpentier, 44, had authorities tightening the search in a thickly wooded area near where the young sisters from Levis, Que. were found.
The attention of the entire province has been on the case, especially in the town of just over 6,000 people where it’s playing out.
