Today, Marilyn Bergeron's family is announcing "366 Days Too Many - A Tribute to Marilyn." Marilyn was last seen on February 17, 2008. On February 17, 2009, there will be a press conference to provide the results of the blitz "Two hours of heart work," as well as the annual search report of a family that simply refuses to give up. The members of Marilyn Bergeron's family will provide their observations about the flaws of a system that does not adapt easily to the current reality. They will also mention the latest developments and recent collaborations, which are more constructive. They will share worrisome statistics and facts in missing persons cases. Lastly, they will give specific recommendations to families living this nightmare and to the people in charge in Quebec that are in a position to make significant changes now. This press conference also has a video presentation and will be followed by a session of questions. It's scheduled for Tuesday, February 17th at 9:00 a.m. in Montreal and 3:00 p.m. in Quebec City in the following locations:

Family and close friends will meet at 6:00 p.m. at the Bergeron family home for an intimate gathering to share thoughts of hope and to reiterate the message that Marilyn is still alive and that we believe we can find her.

MONTREAL -- The parents of a Quebec woman who went missing nearly 10 years ago say there have been 43 reported sightings since last February.

Marilyn Bergeron was 24 years old when she disappeared on Feb. 17, 2008, from the family home in the Quebec City area.

She had just returned to live with her parents after being in Montreal for three years and they have said she was struggling emotionally with something.

Her parents held a news conference in Montreal on Friday and said they want Quebec provincial police to take over the investigation from the Quebec City force because their daughter was living in Montreal and has reportedly been seen in Ontario.

The 43 reported sightings have come since her mother and father held a news conference last February on the ninth anniversary of her disappearance.

Jonathan Gauthier, who knew Bergeron, attended Friday's news conference and said she had changed just before her disappearance.

Gauthier recalled a conversation they had at his apartment in December 2007.
"She cried and she told me something had happened," he said. "She couldn't tell me, she wouldn't tell me. I asked her whether she had been raped or something like that and all of her answers were, "No, it's worse, it's worse."'
Gauthier said he then asked her whether she'd witnessed a murder and that she replied, 'No, it's worse. You just can't imagine what happened.'"

A reward for information about Bergeron's whereabouts stands at $30,000.
