No field research planned
At this stage of the investigation, no more field searches or searches are planned around the place of Lina’s disappearance, BFMTV can confirm today.
Investigators nevertheless retain the right to continue investigations of targeted vehicles, while awaiting the conclusions of the first analyzes of the cars inspected yesterday.
Half a dozen cars inspected and searched yesterday
Renault Clio type vehicles were inspected and searched yesterday in Plaine, Bellefosse, Diespach and Saint-Pierre-Bois.
In Wildersbach, two residents reported to BFMTV that they had seen search teams in white coats as well as a gendarmerie truck interested in a house under construction yesterday morning.
If the hypothesis according to which Lina got into a car on the day of her disappearance is seriously studied by the investigators, “all avenues remain considered”, confirmed the prosecutor two days ago.
Details of the “major operation” carried out yesterday
A “major operation” was carried out yesterday in “several points in the potential area of Lina’s disappearance,” said the Saverne public prosecutor.
The gendarmes targeted half a dozen vehicles of the same model during their search this Friday, BFMTV learned.
All were dark, blue or gray Renault Clios.
