Statement from George and Melinda Wood, parents of Christine


For Immediate Release

“After the most difficult eight months of our lives, we’re now mourning the loss of our beautiful daughter. We are heartbroken and overwhelmed — we never imagined life without our Christine.

“We want to thank our family, friends and all the people, both in Winnipeg and at home in Oxford House, who have supported us and searched for Christine all these months. The love and kindness we have experienced has helped carry our family through this terrible time. We are grateful for the Winnipeg Police Service’s efforts to find our daughter and are hopeful for some form of justice.

“At this time, we ask for privacy as we try to come to terms with the loss of our sweet girl, Christine.”

A public vigil is being planned for Wednesday, April 12, here in Winnipeg. The family will be attending. We will be providing details as they come together and we would be very grateful to see as much support for this family as possible.
