WOODSTOCK, Ont. – The father of Victoria Stafford says police have told him to prepare for the possibility they may never find his daughter’s remains.
Tori went missing on April 8 and six weeks later police arrested 28-year-old Michael Rafferty and charged him with first-degree murder.
Terri-Lynne McClintic, 18, who was originally charged with being an accessory, has since had her charges upgraded to first-degree murder.
Police have been searching for Tori’s remains for 10 days, and though at first they were looking in a specific rural area that has now been widely expanded to include lakes and areas near Canada’s busiest highway, the 401.
Tori’s father, Rodney Stafford, says police told him they may never find his daughter.
But Stafford says without being able to lay his daughter to rest he will never be able to let his mind rest, still thinking there is a shred of hope she is alive.
