Where did Lina go, a 15-year-old teenager, missing since Saturday September 23, 2023? While the young girl was going to the Saint-Blaise-la-Roche station in Bas-Rhin, she disappeared on the way. She was going there on foot to take a train towards Strasbourg, in order to stay with her boyfriend. If two witnesses claimed to have seen the young woman on the way to the station between 11:15 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. – as Aline Clérot, the public prosecutor of Saverne, explained to our colleagues at BFMTV Tuesday September 26 – she has not given any sign of life since. Monday September 25 and Tuesday September 26, two citizen raids were organized with the aim of finding clues to shed light on the investigation, in vain. Lina’s father, Olivier Delsarte, who also participated in the search in the hope of finding his daughter, testified on BFMTV Tuesday September 26. He preferred not to show his face in front of the cameras. “It was the gendarmerie who called me on Sunday morning”he first explained. “At first, I said to myself ‘it’s going to be fine’, but time passes… I jumped in the car, and I went up”confided the father, in shock.
A very impressive research system in Alsace
Since the day Lina disappeared, a major search system has been set up. Police accompanied by a Saint-Hubert dog, a breed of dog known for its exceptional scent, went to the scene. A helicopter and drones were also used to fly several kilometers in record time, in the hope of finding a trace of the teenager. For now, there are no results. The young girl’s phone was cut off on Saturday September 23, 2023 at 11:22 a.m., and her bank card has not been used since, reported the Saverne public prosecutor. Olivier Delsarte confided to our colleagues that he was very touched by the outpouring of solidarity around the disappearance of his daughter. Indeed, for the second citizen hunt organized on Tuesday September 26, nearly 400 people were on site according to France Blue Alsace. “It’s very framed and impressive”explained Lina’s father. “The number of people present is something. The people we don’t know who are just there to help, it’s magnificent”confided the father, very moved by the mobilization of the Alsatians.
