‘Serge Marcil’s story is one of thousands of people’

The former Liberal MP is still missing.

Members of Marcil’s family are scouring hospitals in the Dominican Republic based on reports that he had been transferred to the country’s capital, Santo Domingo, on Thursday.

Two people on the ground in Haiti have said Marcil was found and transferred to the Dominican Republic, said a source close to the family Tuesday. But another tip placed Marcil at a Red Cross camp in the Haitian capital, Port-au-Prince, the source said.

Marcil’s family has also received word that the search operation at the hotel where Marcil was staying has now gone from a rescue operation to one of recovery – meaning that crews do not expect to find anyone alive, the source said.
