Divers, a dog team, a drone and even a helicopter. All the search resources of the gendarmerie have been deployed around Saint-Nazaire, to find the trace of Théo, an Airbus employee who has been missing since Friday, November 1, on his way back from work, in Montoir-de-Bretagne, on the outskirts of the Nazaire conurbation. The alarm was raised the next day by Théo's relatives, after the discovery of his car, abandoned below the northern access to the Saint-Nazaire bridge, not far from a car park.
The gendarmes of Saint-Nazaire took up the case on Saturday, in collaboration with the maritime gendarmerie, to carry out this weekend a first battery of "operational searches", particularly around the bridge, the estuary and the banks of the Brivet, which are difficult to access. A first area was raked Sunday by a dog team, report our colleagues from Ouest France. A specialized dog - a Saint-Hubert - from Rennes was dispatched for the occasion, a police source told Le Figaro. The search, carried out from Theo's abandoned car, also yielded nothing. The young man's vehicle was secured by the authorities and entrusted to the criminal identification technicians of Nantes.
'No preferred track'
"For the time being, no lead is preferred," the Saint-Nazaire gendarmerie confirmed to Le Figaro on Monday. An employee of the Airbus plant in Montoir-de-Bretagne, Théo is "a dynamic person, full of projects who loves life," a relative of the young man described on Facebook. "According to the police, his phone is in Méan, near rue Émile Combes, near the church of Saint-Joseph," she said. According to a police source, the prosecutor's office is preparing to launch an appeal for witnesses on Monday afternoon.
