The Sûreté du Québec will be launching a command post to assist in the search for two Indigenous women, who have been missing since September 6, 2008. 

Maisy Odjick, 16, and Shannon Alexander, 17, were last seen in Maniwaki, Quebec. 

The investigation has been marred with controversy, as Odjick's mother complained in 2009 that the police were treating the case as if the girls had just run away. 

A little more than a year ago, the homicide investigators involved in the case received a tip that prompted a search of the Kitigan Zibi area.  

The command post will be set up in the Kitigan Zibi region, starting Thursday, to help officers collect information that they hope will help solve this cold case.
