“The property was turned over to the owners, midday today and it is asked that the media and general public respect the owners property and privacy,” says Moskaluk.
Police resources have been at the 24 acre site since Oct. 19th where the remains of Traci Genereaux were found.
Moskaluk says the investigation into the 18 year old’s death is ongoing.
Police say their search at a North Okanagan farm is still active and ongoing despite reports that efforts have been scaled back.

“This includes the removal of temporary shelters and heavy equipment. RCMP investigators are continuing their investigative efforts at the property,” says Moskaluk.
