Disappearance of Lina: two witnesses saw the teenager on the way to the station


Highlights: Lina, 15, has been missing since September 23. She was on her way to meet her boyfriend in Strasbourg. Two witnesses saw her on the way to the train station. Her phone has not been found and there is no trace of her. The case is being investigated by the prosecutor of the Republic of S.A. and the police. It is not clear if Lina's disappearance was a suicide or an accident, says the prosecutor, Aline Clérot, who is leading the investigation.

The girl has not given any sign of life since last Saturday. That day, she was about to meet her boyfriend in Strasbourg. Le Figaro takes stock of the case.

Lina, 15, disappeared on Saturday, September 23 without a trace. After kissing her mother, who was starting her nurse's call that morning, the girl left her home in La Plaine, in the Bas-Rhin, at 11am. She headed to the train station where she was to catch a train in order to join her boyfriend in Strasbourg.

On the way to the station, between 11:15 and 11:30, the girl was seen by two witnesses, revealed at a press conference the prosecutor of the Republic of Saverne Aline Clérot. Gray dress, white down jacket and white converses: these two people picked up the same clothes as those indicated by his mother at the police station. This was the last time the teenager was seen alive.

"Lina doesn't appear anywhere"

Did someone stop to pick her up in their vehicle? Did she hitchhike? "No track is to be ruled out or privileged" for the moment, "said the prosecutor. What is certain is that Lina never boarded the train to Strasbourg: her phone, which has not been found, stopped one last time at 11:22 am "on the search area" and the video surveillance cameras on board the train as well as those installed in the Strasbourg station did not reveal any image of the teenager, according to the prosecutor. "Lina does not appear anywhere," notes the prosecutor. Note that La Blaise-Roche-Poutay station is not equipped with any camera...

Lina's boyfriend, who was waiting for her at the Strasbourg train station, also certified to investigators that, not seeing Lina coming at 12:53, the arrival time of the train, he had immediately called Lina's mother, who alerted the police.

Would she have been the victim of an accident? The prosecutor swept away this hypothesis: "no trace on the road or the side was observed evoking a road accident of which she would have been a victim," said Aline Clérot.

Voluntary disappearance?

Since the disappearance of the girl, two beatings, which mobilized several hundred volunteers, have been organized. Today, "the investigations aim to identify the presence of cameras on the routes and axes in the immediate vicinity," added the prosecutor, who said that "no activity was noted on his account after the disappearance".

The entourage of the disappeared was surveyed on Saturday afternoon. The hearings of the relatives revealed that "no recent or old fugue allowing to accredit a voluntary disappearance" was noted. But Aline Clérot stressed that she does not completely exclude this track.
