German authorities at a loss
Search for heavily pregnant top banker (39) stopped
There has been no trace of the banker Alexandra R. from Nuremberg (D) since December 9th. After a search operation with corpse dogs and divers in the Main-Danube Canal was unsuccessful, the police declared the search for the heavily pregnant woman over.
There has been no trace of the heavily pregnant Alexandra R. from Germany for over three weeks.
The case of Alexandra R. (39) from Nuremberg (D) leaves the authorities at a loss: the head of the bank and eight months pregnant woman was last seen on December 9th. Since then she has disappeared without a trace.
All searches by the police have so far been unsuccessful. Only recently, the emergency services in the Main-Danube Canal in Nuremberg searched for the missing person. Together with cadaver dogs, sonar boats and divers, the canal was searched from Nuremberg harbor to the lock. As a police spokesman said, the 39-year-old was not found.
After another unsuccessful operation, the police declared the search for Alexandra R. over on Monday. No further searches are currently planned, it said.
She actually wanted to pick up her daughter from daycare
Since the German lives near the Main-Danube Canal, the police focused their search on it. The emergency services had already searched parts of the canal in the last week.
Alexandra R’s disappearance made headlines across national borders. The businesswoman actually wanted to pick up her two-year-old daughter from daycare more than three weeks ago. However, the pregnant woman never returned.
R. also left all her documents behind: her wallet, her maternity passport and her ID card. Investigators are not ruling out a violent crime. The authorities are puzzling over her mysterious disappearance: the banker has many friends and a partner with whom she is expecting a child. (dzc)
