Corsica again the focus of search for Swiss twins

Swiss police say they are refocusing on the French island of Corsica in their search for 6-year-old Swiss twins missing since Jan. 30.

The police also said Friday the girls were last seen with their father at a beach near Morges, Switzerland.

They said there is no link between the girls' disappearance and a Swiss woman named Katia Iritano who disappeared on Jan. 25. Some had speculated she might have known the girls' father.

Police find GPS microchip of missing twins' father‎

Italian police on Saturday found the microchip from the satellite navigator used by the father of missing Swiss twins, but said it was not clear whether the information on it could be salvaged.

"We found the microchip buried under stones," near the tracks of the station in southern Italy where Matthias Schepp threw himself under a fast train, local police official Alfredo Fabbrocini told AFP.

The chip, made by the company Garmin, has been sent to the firm's Milan branch before it is sent on to America to be analysed, Fabbrocini said.

Police hope the chip will help them retrace Schepp's steps since his January 28 departure from Switzerland and lead to the missing six-year-olds, Livia and Alessia.

"It looks in better condition than the navigator, but we can't be sure what, if anything, they'll find on it," Fabbrocini said. "We can't say this is the turning point in the case."

Swiss police say 6-year-old missing twins last seen alive in Geneva‎

GENEVA - More than five weeks after missing 6-year-old Swiss twins were last seen, witnesses have confirmed the girls and their father were in Geneva on the afternoon of their disappearances.

The sighting, between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. on January 30, is the last of Alessia and Livia Schepp since their father — Matthias Schepp — picked them up from their home in Lausanne.

Schepp's body was found under a train days later in Cerignola, Italy after he sent a letter to his wife saying the girls were "resting in peace, they didn't suffer" — and he would now kill himself.

Swiss police in the canton (state) of Vaud said Monday witnesses had "specific information to suggest that it was Alessia, Livia and their father" they had seen.

Italian police found a microchip from Schepp's car's navigational device on Saturday.

Sighting of missing Swiss twins confirmed by witnesses‎

Geneva, Switzerland - Swiss police said Monday that witness accounts of missing twins Alessia and Livia Schepp being seen alive with their father in Geneva on the day they vanished have been confirmed.

Matthias Schepp, 43, reportedly took the girls from their St. Sulpice, Switzerland home on Jan. 28. Police say he had studied suicide methods, poisons, information regarding firearms, and ferry schedules before taking his 6-year-old daughters with him.

The latest confirmed sighting of the twins was between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. on Jan. 30 in Geneva.

Schepp committed suicide shortly thereafter, throwing himself under a train in southern Italy on Feb. 3.

A week or so later, a letter written by Schepp to his estranged wife was obtained by police, which claimed he killed the girls and said, “You will not see them again.”

Schepp also wrote that Alessia and Livia did “did not suffer and died in peace.”

Missing twins: chief Swiss investigator raises spectre of murder

Lausanne, Switzerland (GenevaLunch) – Pascal Gilléron, chief investigator in canton Vaud in the case of missing twins Alessia and Livia Schepp, has told a Fribourg newspaper in an interview Friday that officials are now considering more closely the possibility that the six-year-old girls’ father killed them.

The children disappeared, with their father, 30 January from their village of St Sulpice near Lausanne, and while many of his steps have been traced, the thread for the girls’ movements was lost.

The three-country investigation will move back to Switzerland next week, he told La Liberté, to confirm information already gathered by police in Switzerland.

Authorities vow 2-month-old search continues for missing Swiss twin girls

The now 2-month-old search for missing Swiss twins has turned up new surveillance images of the father who whisked them away and later killed himself in which he is alone without the 6-year-old girls.

Investigators suggested Wednesday that the new video and other new evidence lent more credence to the theory that when Alessia and Livia Schepp disappeared on Jan. 30, their father Matthias Schepp drove them from their hometown in Lausanne on a one-way trip to the French island of Corsica, where the family had vacationed in happier times.

"The father's presence has been confirmed by a number of video images from surveillance cameras," investigators from Switzerland, France and Italy said in a joint statement. "The presence of the girls, however, has been confirmed only by witnesses."

At a news conference, police and prosecutors from the three nations said they also had determined there were just four children on the overnight ferry that Schepp took from Marseille to the French island of Corsica, lending weight to witness accounts that the girls were with him when he drove his black Audi A6 wagon onto the boat.

He had bought three tickets for the ferry to Corsica, but just one for the voyage back a day later to the French mainland. From there, he drove to Italy.

Police vow search for Swiss twins will continue

... Police said they had worked out more details of the father's four-day drive to Italy, but French police turned up no evidence the girls were with him after checking every gas station and hotel in the region around Montelimar where he spent the first night.

"At this stage in the investigation, the Corsica trail remains the primary one, but in the absence of any formal proof, all other hypotheses are also being examined by Swiss, French and Italian police," the investigators said in a statement issued by police in the Swiss canton (state) Vaud.

Investigators said Wednesday that the search for the girls would go on despite the mounting costs or lack of significant new leads, responding to criticism by the girls' mother earlier in the week.

Lucidi had written Monday on a Facebook page maintained by her supporters that the Swiss police could have done more to find the girls and she feared Lausanne's prosecutor, Pascal Gillieron, might call off the search because of the costs.

Swiss police said they were doing everything possible to find the two. Gillieron said the search would continue and he had spared no costs.

Lucidi also acknowledged that the prosecutor's "hypothesis of murder ... unfortunately seems to be the most plausible" explanation — though she believes the girls are alive.

"Even if it could seem improbable, Alessia and Livia could be in Europe or in any other part of the world, maybe trusted to someone," the mother wrote.
