THE CANADIAN PRESS -- MONTREAL - The mother of slain Quebec girl Jolene Riendeau says police are close to catching her killer.

Dolores Soucy says that seeing her daughter's killer put behind bars is the most important thing to her now.

Soucy thanked Quebecers for their support and talked today about how difficult it was to endure the 12 years her daughter was missing.

Jolene was 10 when she was last seen April 12, 1999, near a convenience store in the Montreal neighbourhood where she lived.
Jolene's remains were found just three kilometres from home by a construction worker in late 2010.

But police kept the information to themselves until last month, when they publicized the discovery and announced the launch of a homicide investigation.

A 47-year-old man was detained and released and is considered the prime suspect in the case.

A reward has been offered for information leading to an arrest.
