The number of children that may be buried in unmarked and undocumented graves at the site of the former Kamloops Indian Residential School may be much higher than the 215 already believed to have been discovered.

Dr. Sarah Beaulieu, a ground-penetrating radar (GPR) specialist who was part of the investigation, said there is much more work to be done.

The findings of a report were released Thursday morning about the remains found on the site.

Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc Chief Rosanne Casimir started the event by saying they stand with residential school survivors across the country. “We see you and we believe you,” she said.

“We are forever thankful for your willingness to carry this burden of truth forward, so we could verify with science where some of the missing children’s remains are located on the grounds of the Kamloops residential school.”
