Dominic Maryk, 8, and sister Abby Maryk, 6, are still missing. In an effort to locate them, Child Find Manitoba has turned to Facebook to help spread the word and generate any leads in their whereabouts.
“We urge all Facebook users to join the Bring Abby and Dominic Home group and to invite their family and friends to do so as well. Since it is strongly believed the children are no longer in Manitoba, it’s important that word of this Facebook group also reaches those in other provinces and countries,” said Christy Dzikowicz, Director of Child Find Manitoba. “Our goal is to use as many means possible to get the faces of these children in front of as wide an audience as possible. Utilizing Facebook affords us the opportunity to get the global reach this case requires.”
More than 500 people have joined the Facebook group, which launched only a few short days ago.
The Maryk children are believed to have been abducted by their biological father — 38-year-old Kevin Maryk — just over one year ago.
Earlier this month, the Winnipeg Police Service took a similar approach by using the Internet to help locate the Maryk children when they launched a YouTube channel. You can view the video they uploaded, which features the mother of the children, Emily Cablek, by clicking here.
