Detective Sergeant Shaunna Neufeld of the Winnipeg Police Service's Missing Persons Unit tells CJOB, the investigation is a long way from being completed:
Christy Dzikowicz of the Canadian Centre for Child Protection paid tribute to the Winnipeg Police Service and of course the children's mother:
Statement from Emily Cablek, the mother of the two abducted children:
“I cannot put into words how grateful I am for all the wonderful support I received from the community over the past 3 years. I want to thank the Winnipeg police missing persons unit for their amazing persistence and to the Canadian Centre for Child Protection for standing by me and guiding me through the worst 45 months of my life. You all helped me stay strong for the most important moment of my life, for that you will always be in my heart and a part of my family. I am the happiest mommy in the world right now, and am asking PLEASE give my family some privacy so that we can begin to heal. We still have a long road ahead and I want my children to feel completely safe through it all... they deserve nothing less.”
