The Missing Children’s Network partnered with the Association des familles de personnes assassinées ou disparues (AFPAD), and Meurtres et disparitions irrésolus du Québec (MDIQ), in the realization of a very important sensitization campaign.
An Endless Nightmare is a true labor of love and a testament to the courage, resilience and perseverance of all those families whose loved one is missing.
Accompanied by experts in police matters, psychological support and media, seven families openly share their experience, explain the challenges encountered and offer advice to all those agonizing over the worst nightmare possible.
An Endless Nightmare is a series of 4 videos that includes the following subjects:
- The Disappearance and Search https://youtu.be/YsWgvhyP5BA
- The Impacts on One’s Health https://youtu.be/BgylDvKzg2k
- As the Years Go By https://youtu.be/sPI6JtFmzHE
- Keeping Hope Alive https://youtu.be/iQEbRyXAMv0
We would like to extend our sincerest thanks to the professionals who shared their expertise and whose collaboration allowed us to gain greater insight and understanding of the realities of a disappearance on loved ones: Dr. Pascale Brillon, Psychologist, who offered sound advice and outlined the physical and mental hardships experienced by those suffering from the loss of a loved one; Yves Malo, former Lieutenant-Detective of Montreal Police who explained the role of investigators in cases involving a missing child or adult and Jean-François Guérin, reporter and TV host who spoke about the role of the media and the importance of communicating new information.
A very special thank you to the families of Marilyn Bergeron, Mélissa Blais, Diane Carrier, Yohanna Cyr, David Fortin, Mélina Martin and Pinaskin Ottawa who generously shared their experience, courage and determination.
This important information and sensitization campaign was made possible thanks to a financial contribution by Justice Canada as part of Victims and Survivors of Crime Week. The videos were produced by Productions de l’Autre Côté.
