    INTL - Alessia & Livia Schepp (twins), 6, 30 Jan 2011 - Italy, Switzerland and France

    International Manhunt Underway For Missing Swiss Twins

    Police in Italy, Switzerland and France searched on Sunday for 6-year-old twin girls who disappeared after their father died in an apparent suicide.

    The body of Matthias Kaspar Schepp, 43, a Canadian-born resident of Switzerland, was found by a railway station near the southern Italian port city Bari shortly before 11 p.m. on Thursday, according to Swiss police in the canton (state) of Vaud.

    Authorities believe Schepp, who was separated from his wife, threw himself under a train. Police in Switzerland, Italy and France are searching for the twin girls, Alessia and Livia, who lived in Lausanne with their mother, Irina Lucidi, 44.

    According to Italian news reports, Schepp picked up his daughters from their mother's home on Jan. 28 for the weekend.

    Swiss police say Schepp, rather than returning the girls to their mother, took them when he left his home in St. Sulpice, a suburb of Lausanne, on Jan. 30.

    Both girls were described as wearing glasses and blue jeans, with Alessia bundled in a white jacket over a striped shirt, and Livia dressed in a purple ski jacket over a green t-shirt.

    From Switzerland, Schepp drove into France on 30 January before withdrawing €7,500 (£6,300) from cashpoints in Marseille the following day. He also sent a postcard to his wife from Marseille, reportedly stating: "Now it is time to finish it." Police in Marseille said that Schepp bought three tickets to Propriano in Corsica on a ferry leaving on Monday night

    I was thinking the same thing... How tragic... I don't think this one is going to end well either.

    Alessia




    Livia




    Their mother told Swiss police that her estranged husband “loved the children and would never hurt them”.

    Unfortunately that theory did not turn out so well for Juliani...

    I wonder why he went to Corsica. That is an island. Then later he was found in Southern Italy by himself? Strange to go to Corsica first.

    The husband committed suicide on Thursday Feb 3. He reserved tickets to go to Corscia on Monday Jan 31 and was seen driving onto the boat, the twin girls have not been seen since. It has been reported that he withdrew a lot of cash and the hope is that maybe this money was used to have somebody take care of them.

    Police broaden search for missing Swiss twins

    bbm

    GENEVA -- An international search for twin girls whose father apparently committed suicide was broadened on Monday as Swiss police searched homes, boats and the waters of Lake Geneva.
    ............
    Swiss police said Monday that French police in Marseilles had established that Schepp bought tickets for himself and his daughters to catch a ferry to Propriano, in Corsica, but they were unable to determine whether they had boarded it.

    Today is a day was quite interesting for the development of the investigation: if in the early hours of this morning has been known to the rest of the discovery of a will left by humans , they are also mentioned his little daughters, and then later it was discovered that the three traveled on Monday 31 January to board a ferry from Marseilles and Corsica in direct , dates back a few hours ago the revelation by a restaurateur field that would have seen Matthias Schepp eat a quick lunch in their local, on Feb. 3, the day before committing suicide.

    Ferdinand Trotta, this is the name of the owner of the restaurant, said Schepp 'is' come to the restaurant at lunchtime, he ate a pizza, we exchanged a few words. And I' seemed a very jovial, very definitely serene. He was alone, the girls were not with him. "

    Oh boy. The one with glasses looks so much like a cousin of mine (when she was young). I cannot imagine what this must be like for the poor mom. But people who adore their kids do kill them, usually for three reasons: 1. The parent suffers a mental break. 2. The child is seen as an extension of the parent and if the parent is suffering on earth and wants to leave it, the children must leave as well. 3. Revenge. Their hatred for the ex is greater than their adoration of the children.

    This case does not look good. That the man likely killed himself is a very bad sign.

    That's the first thing i thought when learning of the ferry trip. He was seen without the girls after that trip, if indeed he did make the trip.
    For Elizabeth, a minor child, a victim. Thank God she is home!

    If the snips below are true, I have no doubt he has done the worst:

    He then drove through France in a Swiss-registered Audi A6 before withdrawing €7,500 (£6,300) from several cashpoints in Marseille the following day.

    He also sent his estranged wife a postcard which is thought to have said: 'Now it is time to finish it.'
