Two more girls have voted against foster care with their feet. They are Kathie McDonald, who left foster care in Hamilton, and Riviera Hollahan of Winnipeg. Some controversy has attended the McDonald case, since CAS feels free to violate the Child and Family Services Act by naming a child in foster care. Another report says McDonald was picked up within two days of publishing her name.

Girl, 11, missing
CITY police are seeking help from the public to find a missing 11-year-old girl. Riviera Hollahan was last seen Friday between 1 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. at the Freight House recreation centre on Isabel Street.
Police describe Riviera as an aboriginal girl, 5 ft. 1 in. tall with a medium build and long dark brown hair with blonde streaks in a pony tail. She was last seen wearing a white and grey tank top, blue jeans and white shoes.
When children go missing, the police must decide whether they’re in trouble or not. So far police don’t believe this girl is in trouble. “Investigators are actively investigating,” Winnipeg Police Service spokeswoman, Const. Jacqueline Chaput said. “At this point, we’re not looking at this as suspicious in nature.”
Any person who may have seen her is requested to contact police at 986-6222.

Addendum: Months later the website of the Winnipeg police marked Rivera Hollahan as LOCATED, without any indication of time or place.
