Quebec police continue to search for missing girls and their father

Search for girls continues

Police are still searching for two Quebec girls and their father in a suburb of Quebec City, after an Amber Alert was issued Thursday.

The search for Romy Carpentier, 6, Norah Carpentier, 11, and their father, Martin Carpentier, picked up again around 7 a.m. local time in St-Apollinaire, Que.

Quebec provincial police say they have reason to believe the three are still alive.

The girls and their father are believed to have been involved in a car crash Wednesday night on Highway 20 in the town south of Quebec City.

The police search is centred on a rural area of St-Apollinaire, and ATVs, police dogs and a helicopter have been used.

Police say they searched over 150 kilometres of wooded areas and roads on Friday.
