    Sought by the australian authorities since may, 2016, the Québec Maxime Gagnon finally gave sign of life on the 9th march last, returning to her family almost 10 months after it disappeared.

    It is finally with an exclamation point, on the 9th of march, that ended the nebula story of the disappearance of Maxime Gagnon. A native of the South Shore of Montreal, a man of 30 years was undertaken in 2015, a long journey in Asia.

    Without new

Arrived in Australia at the beginning of 2016, it was reduced and then ceased all contact with his family, to the point where a notice of disappearance had been launched on may 6, 2016 by the australian authorities.

    Relatives of Montrealers had no news since several weeks already. According to the survey conducted by the australian police in Queensland, Maxime Gagnon, however, had been seen in a tourist location of the city of Cairns, in the north-east of Australia.

    Disappearance Voluntary ?

    Despite the anxiety of the relatives of the traveler, they knew that Maxime Gagnon had a penchant for travelling solo. They continued to believe, in November 2016, when a new search is launched in the australian media, that Maxim could have voluntarily decided to ” disappear “.

    Elsewhere, the Queensland police asked the community to “back-packers to open the eye and inform the police” if they saw the Quebec. This is ultimately what happened on 9 march.

    In a short dispatch, the australian police has confirmed, nearly 10 months after his disappearance, that Maxime Gagnon had been located ” safe and well “. On the side of global Affairs in Canada, it was confirmed that the disappeared is alive and well ” back in Canada “.

    However, it was impossible to know the circumstances of his return to civilization or his motivations. Our interview requests to Maxime Gagnon has been refused after some hesitation. A relative has just said that he now wanted to ” be forgotten “.
