The Sûreté du Québec, which in the past few days has chosen not to share updates in the search for Martin Carpentier, believes he's still alive and claims to have identified new investigative "elements."
The provincial police force made the announcement on Twitter on Friday morning. The information is leading police officers to be deployed "in large numbers" in the Saint-Apollinaire sector.
The objective of this deployment is to search for new clues and secure properties.

Since investigators are trying to check all the cottages and outbuildings in the area, they invite cottagers who may be out of town to call 9-1-1.
At a press briefing yesterday, SQ spokesperson Ann Mathieu mentioned that Martin Carpentier would not be considered dangerous.
The man has been wanted for more than a week after he disappeared following a car accident. The bodies of his two daughters, Norah and Romy Carpentier, were found on Saturday.
