A funeral date has been set for a Toronto girl whose remains were found on a golf course earlier this month after she went missing in 2009.

The funeral for Mariam Makhniashvili will be held Saturday, March 24 at 1 p.m. at Murray Newbigging Funeral home at 773 Mt. Pleasant Dr.

Viewing will take place on Friday, March 23 from 2 to 4 p.m. and from 7 to 9 p.m.

There are questions about whether Makhniashvili's father, Vakhtang, will be able to attend the funeral. He is currently serving a six-year prison sentence for three stabbings.

In 2010, the year after his daughter went missing, he stabbed a neighbour he accused of being involved in her disappearance, and later stabbed both members of a couple that had posted bail for him after the first incident.

However Calvin Barry, the lawyer representing Vakhtang Makhniashvili's, said he is working on the paperwork to allow his client to attend.

"I anticipate that he will be there," Barry said.

The funeral chapel holds only 100 people. Makhniashvili's remains will be cremated after the funeral.

Makhniashvili's body was located in a ravine under Highway 401 near Yonge Street, more than two years after her disappearance sparked the largest missing person's search in Toronto police history.

Makhniashvili had moved to Canada from the Republic of Georgia just three months before her disappearance. She spoke little English and left behind her backpack and her books, which were discovered a month after her disappearance.

Police say that Makhniashvili was likely alive when she fell from the bridge, pointing to suicide as a probable cause of death. Police have ruled out foul play.
