'Clueless' detectives scale back search for missing Maelys de Araujo, after a month, although case remains open

Post by Get'emGonçalo on 01.10.17 12:06

The mum of an eight-year-old girl who vanished without a trace at a wedding party more than a month ago has begged for answers.

Jennifer de Araujo described the wait for news about her beloved daughter Maelys as "unbearable".

The youngster vanished at a wedding party on August 27 and there have been no sightings of her since - despite police interviewing 250 guests at the bash.

A 34-year-old suspect was arrested after DNA belonging to the child was found in his car, but she still hasn't been located.

Police have been searching in dense woodland near the scene of the disappearance in Pont-de-Beauvoisin, 25 miles west of Chambery, south-eastern France.

The girl's mum said at an emotional press conference: "Our only hope is to find our daughter. This wait is unbearable."

The suspect, named in French media as former military dog trainer Nordahl Lelandais, admitted the girl was in his car on the day of her disappearance but claims she later returned to the wedding party.

Maelys's mum urged Lelandais to "reveal everything that happened on that night and cooperate with the law".

She said the suspect had displayed a "strange attitude" during the wedding, adding that the family did not know him.

Regional police chief Yves Marzin said three sniffer dogs had all lost the scent from Maelys's cuddly toy at the same spot in the car park outside the venue, raising fears she was whisked away in a vehicle.

A massive search involving divers, cavers and a helicopter was scaled back on September 12 after no trace was found of the girl.
