Bathurst teen remembered on birthday as questions still surround disappearance

Madison Roy-Boudreau should be celebrating her 15th birthday Wednesday. Instead, her family is grieving her loss.

“We hope she’s having a very happy heavenly birthday,” says Maggie Lavigne.

Lavigne has taken on the role of family spokesperson – as Roy-Boudreau’s family continues to grapple with the disappearance of the teenager last May.

In the eight months since Madison went missing, her birthday is the latest milestone her family has had to mark without her.

“Christmas wasn’t normal, Thanksgiving wasn’t normal, nothing is normal,” Lavigne says.

In August, Bathurst police uploaded a video declaring they believe Roy-Boudreau to have been the victim of a homicide.

They’ve not indicated what evidence has led them to that conclusion, or what they believe happened to her after she was seen getting into a grey Ford Ranger on May 11. Nor have they said who – if anyone – is considered a suspect.

“We’re just hoping whatever the cops do have to deem this a homicide, that they have the proper proof and they can hurry up and bring this to rest.”

Global News reached out to Bathurst Police Wednesday for any updates but did not hear back.

The last information made public by the force was the temporary suspension of searches in September.
