The kidnapping thesis was widely favored Tuesday morning for the girl disappeared since Sunday in Isère, investigators judging “likely” that she was ridden in a car, according to a source close to the file.

“Given the scale of the investigations and investigations, and the commitment of law enforcement agencies, every hour passes by accrediting the criminal thesis, in the sense of criminalization of a kidnapping, AFP, in opposition to “an accidental thesis or a fugue, or a disappearance that would not have originated a kidnapping”.

“The more time passes, the more likely she is to be in a car,” she added.

The prosecution opened an investigation on Monday for kidnapping but without excluding the accidental track. The public prosecutor in Bourgoin-Jallieu must hold a press conference at 14:30.

Maëlys, 9, was last seen on Sunday at 3:00 am when she was attending a wedding in the Salle de Fêtes de Pont-de-Beauvoisin, with her parents and other members of her family.

There were 180 guests at this reception.

After intense research, including helicopter and dogs, a large number of hearings took place and a search was carried out at the residence of the warden of the room, among other investigations carried out by the Gendarmes, according to sources familiar with the case.

The parents of Maëlys and their two daughters have been settled for two and a half years in the village of Mignovillard (Jura).

“It is a family that had settled quite recently in the commune and has never talked about it,” said Mayor Florent Serrette to AFP.

The case was handed over to the research section of Grenoble, the company and the research brigade of the Tour-du-Pin and the territorial brigade of Pont-de-Bonvoisin.

A call to witnesses had been launched Sunday night to find the girl, who measures 1m30, weighs 28 kg, has dull skin, brown eyes and chestnut hair. She was dressed at the wedding of a “sleeveless dress” and “barefoot” in white.
