Disappearance of Lina: "I went around the station several times," says her boyfriend


Highlights: Lina, 15, has been missing since Saturday. Her boyfriend, Tao, was the last person to see her. He says she sent him a video showing her in her last moments. Lina's mother says she is in "excruciating pain" over her daughter's disappearance. The search continues for Lina in the town of Saint-Blaise-de-Roche, near Strasbourg, in eastern France, where she was last seen by her boyfriend on Saturday.

Tao was one of the last people to communicate with the teenager on the day of her disappearance. In front of a camera, he tells how he realized that Lina had disappeared.

While the search continues this Wednesday to find Lina, missing in Saint-Blaise-la-Roche (Bas-Rhin) since Saturday, her boyfriend Tao spoke publicly at the microphone of TF1 during an interview in front of the camera with the mother of the teenager.

The 19-year-old is one of the last known people to have contacted Lina, who has not given any sign of life since Saturday around 11:20 am. The girl, aged 15 and living in a hamlet located just over three kilometers from the Saint-Blaise-de-Roche station, disappeared before being able to take her TER train. He was to take him to Strasbourg, where Tao was waiting for him to spend a day in the city to "go to the restaurant", "go shopping", then return to Saint-Blaise-la-Roche.

According to the young man, who had been in a relationship for several months with Lina, the teenager sent him a last video around 11:15 am on which she "showed her outfit" of the day while walking on the road leading to Saint-Blaise-de-Roche. "It was a video of her showing me her outfit and that she was happy to come," says the teenager.

'She never got off' from the train

Tao then did not receive any more messages from the reception of this video. After an hour without solicitation, the young man, worried, contacted the mother of the teenager. "I called his mother before the train arrived in Strasbourg to tell her there was something strange. I still waited on the station platform for the train to arrive, and it never got off." Tao then reports having "gone around the station several times", before taking the road towards Saint-Blaise-la-Roche.

During this same sequence recorded by TF1, Lina's mother also spoke about the disappearance of her daughter with emotion. "It's excruciating pain, it's visceral, I sleep more, I eat more. I can't do anything but think about her." The teenager's mother described her daughter's last vision. "I went to see her in the bathroom, that was the last moment I saw her. She was happy, she was enthusiastic." Lina has already been missing for four days. While a beating organized this Tuesday and gathering nearly 400 people has yielded nothing, divers of the gendarmerie probed this Wednesday afternoon two ponds of the department in search of a trace of the teenager.
