DAWSON CREEK -- When Renee Didier disappeared from Dawson Creek nearly six months ago, it was sudden and unexpected.

Now, with the discovery of Didier's body, her family is full of questions about what happened to the 40-year-old mother of two.

“We don’t have closure because we don’t now what happened to Renee,” said her father Roland Supernant.

Police announced Monday that the BC Coroners Service had identified remains discovered along the Kiskatinaw River on May 18 as belonging to Didier.

"I want justice. I want the person or people who did this to Renee to pay,” said Supernant.

Supernant said the discovery of Renee’s remains leaves so many questions still unanswered.

Supernant said his daughter, “was a loving mother who loved her two kids more than anything. She is at home now, she can rest.”

Friends and family reported Didier missing a few days after the Mounties say she was last seen on video captured at a gas station in the early morning on Dec. 3.

"She was outspoken but she was kind and respected everybody," Supernant said.

Supernant is urging anyone with information about his daughter’s death to come forward to police.

The Mounties said their North District Major Crime Unit is now investigating Didier's death along with another case of unidentified remains discovered in April along a rural road outside the city of about 12,000 residents.

Nine months before Didier disappeared, her cousin, Darylyn Supernant, had vanished from the community too.
