    The priest opened the ceremony by inviting people to pray for the child of 10 years who has not given new since last Monday, so he should travel with a friend on a lunch hour.

    Jean-Louis Nvougbia wished to instill a little hope in the “climate of sadness and grief” that is rampant.

    “We can’t stay insensitive as christians, as baptized, as a citizen. […] I sense the solidarity which goes up, but this is not enough. It is still necessary to move forward. We can pray, we should get involved, open your eyes and be attentive, we must look behind our houses,” he said to the faithful attending the mass.

    During this time, the police are busying themselves always to search for the child, for a sixth consecutive day, with the objective of completing the operation of door-to-door that began Saturday.

    The command post of the police Department of the City of Montreal was still installed in the Galeries Normandie, Sunday. The information collected up to now do not allow for the progress of the investigation, so the police have had to return to work since the beginning.

    In the hope of getting things moving, Saturday, the family of the little Ariel announced that it was offering a $ 10,000 reward to anyone who would have information to locate the child.
