TROIS-RIVIERES, Que. -- Quebec provincial police say they are calling off the search for clues in the area where remains of nine-year-old Cedrika Provencher were found.
She disappeared from her hometown of Trois-Rivieres in July 2007.
Passersby happened on her skull in a nearby wooded area on Dec. 11.
Police said last Thursday they had received about 200 tips since they began searching for new clues.
They indicated at the time the investigation was progressing well and that they were still interested in the driver of a red Acura that was seen near the scene of her disappearance.
She was last seen being approached by an adult to help search for a missing black and white dog.
Her disappearance spawned massive manhunts, a huge police investigation and the distribution of hundreds of posters showing her photo.
