    Germany - Inga Gehricke, 5, Stendal, Sachsen-Anhalt, 2 May 2015

    Five-year-old Inga Gehricke hasn't been seen since Saturday night around 7.40pm when she apparently wandered away from a party her family were attending at a condominium, and into a forest. Police say she 'most likely' went into the forest with other children, to light a campfire.

    Inga and her family member/members were visiting the area from Schönebeck near Magdeburg, where she lives. The condominium is a supervised center for those with substance addiction issues and mental health problems. 550 police and K9s have been searching 3,500 hectares of forest for Inga since Saturday, but no trace has been found. The weather has been mild but wolves do inhabit the forest, which isin a fairly remote and sparsely populated region.

    Inga is 1.20m (3ft 11") tall and was wearing a butterfly T-shirt and jeans. She has blonde hair and blue eyes.

    I don't understand why police aren't certain by now if she was with other children or not, or what kind of supervision there is at the center with children running about a huge forest alone, at nearly 8pm?

    A bit more info here, that makes more sense. it's in German so I'll summarize.

    The parents/family were visiting a disabled person at the center. The children had been sent out to collect kindling for a campfire. A hair scrunchie has been found but it definitely was not the one Inga was wearing. Media says that quick discovery proves Inga's family are still at the scene.

    Because bad weather (I am guessing heavy rain) hampered the search yesterday, over 100 extra police vehicles have been drafted in today. Helicopters are also being used, and residents and caregivers of the Wilhemshof center are now being questioned.

    There is a very reasonable German language forum here, with extra info about the location and search area from locals. It's google translated but pretty easy to make out.

    I would be very surprised if a wolf got her. Could happen, but I doubt that is the case.

    I hope she is found soon.

    I suppose the heavy rain explains why none of the German K9s have picked up a scent? Most of them are very good.

    I agree. Adult wolves are so shy. The only thing that worries me is cubs. There were two last year that stalked a soldier on night patrol for fun. I have no idea if it's the breeding season now though.

    The rain will be a blessing if little Inga's been lost in the forest since Saturday night,without food or water. A puddle could mean the difference between life and death.

    Police had a sound truck driving up and down the forest roads Monday, calling out to little Inga. Despite intensive searches, they haven't found a trace of her in the forest. They also questioned 100 people.

    It's lunchtime Tuesday in Germany now and the situation will be extremely ominous if she's not found today.

    Police are appealing for tips and have released the additional info that Inga has a large gap between her front teeth.

    I'll try and track down the police tip number as the article doesn't have it.

    This article says she was last seen at the barbecue area, which doesn't make any sense.

    It also says police are looking at a unit housing sex offenders - just 3km (2 miles) from where Inga disappeared.

    In an ever-expanding search, no trace of Inga has been found:

    K9s - found no scent in either forest or building grounds
    Helicopters with thermal imaging - nothing
    Searches of private rooms at the center - no evidence at all

    The Executive of the center said a barbecue there was nothing special. It has 24 people with drug addiction and 60 people with disabilities spread across five homes, cared for by 30 employees - some of whom live there with their families.

    Inga's family never intended to stay the night - police say they were going to drive the 100km (about 60 miles) home after the barbecue.

    The nearby Uchtspringe hospital's prison wing houses numerous sex offenders, and has had previous scandals involving inmates money laundering and sharing child pornography from there.

    Police refused to answer the reporter's question of whether they believe Inga is still alive.
