Concerned residents

Lina, aged 15, has been missing since September 23. After searches of ponds and the testimony of several people who claim to have seen the teenager only a few minutes before she disappeared, the investigators are still making no progress.

In the town of Plaine, life is gradually returning to normal. Journalists and investigators are less present on the field, and the town's inhabitants are trying as best as they can to return to normal life. But the disappearance of the young girl continues to worry them for their own safety. As BFM Alsace reports, the villagers 'live in fear'. Since the terrible tragedy, parents have been systematically dropping off and looking for their children at school and school bus stops. Others explain that they are suspicious as soon as an unfamiliar face or car is spotted.

Lina in a car with a relative?

Since the start of the investigation, many of those close to Lina have given evidence, most recently Mélina, her childhood best friend, who talked about the teenager. Mélina claims that Lina would never get into a car with someone she didn't know.

Another witness claims to have seen Lina in a car with a young man that day. He described the young man:

As they passed by, he turned his head. I'd say it was a dark-haired boy with a small beard or goatee.

While no culprit has been found, many people suspect Tao, her boyfriend, in the story. For the moment, there is no evidence against him.
