On September 6, 2008, Maisy and Shannon spent the day at the latter’s house in Maniwaki, Quebec. They had plans to attend a school dance in Maniwaki on that same night, and Shannon’s father mentioned that the girls were looking forward to a fun time. The girls went to the school dance that night and some of their friends spoke of seeing them. They vanished soon afterwards, and that was the end of their contact with anyone. On September 7, Maisy’s mother tried calling her daughter as she had not gotten in contact with her since traveling to Shannon’s house. However, once she failed to contact Maisy, she called up Shannon’s father and was surprised to learn that the girls hadn’t returned home from the school dance. What was more surprising was that Maisy and Shannon had left their identifications, wallets, backpacks, and medicines behind, which indicated that the disappearance wasn’t planned.

Are Shannon Alexander and Maisy Odjick missing or found? Are They Alive or Dead

Shannon and Maisy remain missing to this day. However, their families hope that they will return home safe. Once the teenagers’ parents realized that the girls were nowhere to be found, they immediately reported them missing to the local police department. The show also mentioned that police initially believed the girls had fled on their own. This hindered the investigation. As a result, a search of Shannon’s apartment and the publicization of the disappearance was delayed. However, law enforcement officials quickly took the case seriously and organized a press conference to spread the word. They interviewed several people about possible places that the teens might have visited and attempted to determine if foul play was involved. The police and volunteers searched the area but found no information about the girls missing.

Unfortunately, reports mentioned that Maisy and Shannon’s parents haven’t been happy about the way authorities handled the case. In fact, in 2009, Maisy’s mother claimed that the police still believed the teens had run away and were not helping much in the search. Despite this, the police were able to raise enough money to reward anyone with information about the girls by 2011. Unfortunately, the police had no new leads even after the fifth anniversary of the disappearance.

However, in 2017, the police suddenly announced that they had further information on the case about a location where they might find Maisy and Shannon’s bodies. Although the girls haven’t been declared dead as of yet, authorities followed the tip and combed through a creek near the Kitigan Zibi reserve in Quebec. They came up empty-handed, and quickly realized that the lead was dead. Despite the fact that the case is still active information, there has not been any new developments in the disappearance investigation. On the other hand, Maisy and Shannon’s families are hopeful about their safe return and implore anyone with any helpful information to step forward and help in the search.
