Days after a young child was found dead off Gambier Island following a boating accident, a tragic mystery remains.
RCMP are still looking for clues as to what caused the death of 7-year-old Maddie, and the disappearance her father, North Vancouver dentist William Liebenberg.
While child’s body was found in the water off Gambier Island, Constable Harrison Mohr says they still don’t know where the dad ended up.
“We never want to give up hope but at this point there is no official search going on and we are following up with any witnesses and any people who had last had contact with this father and daughter.”
Mohr says they are asking anyone who saw the pair in a 20-foot aluminum hard-top boat that evening.
The Coast Guard called off the search for Leibenberg Sunday night.
