It’s a tragic end to a months-old mystery.
Upper Ottawa Valley OPP confirmed Tuesday morning that the human remains discovered in the Ottawa River south of Pembroke Thursday are those of 16-year-old Trinity Poil.
She was reported missing to military police at Garrison Petawawa in February.
On Friday, the OPP said that the remains appeared to have been submerged for some time and that the families of two girls — the second is a 17-year-old who plunged off a railway bridge in Petawawa May 5 — had been notified of the discovery.
Poil was last seen when she went to bed on Feb. 12, the night of the region’s worst snowstorm of the year. In March, her family marked her 17th birthday without her.
The search for a missing teenage girl from Garrison Petawawa has widened.
16-year-old Trinity Poil hasn’t been seen since Tuesday night.
Her family tells Star 96-7 she left her home in the Cleve Avenue area sometime between 10:00 p.m. on Tuesday and 4:20 a.m. on Wednesday.
They add that they’re very concerned about her well being.
Petawawa Military Police sent out a notice on Wednesday afternoon advising the public of her disappearance.
Her family tells us that as of Friday morning, police have found no significant clues.
Volunteers searched the north side of the base on Thursday, using snowshoes and snowmobiles, but found no sign of Trinity.
Valour School has been putting up posters with more information, trying to spread the word around town.
If you know anything, or think you’ve seen Trinity, please contact police.
