Thanks for all this. I have been following this case for a long time now. I check in from time to time just in the hope that something will break... It's been 30 years. I believe Helwig died in prison without ever revealing any information, which is a shame. I believe the deaf daughters said they remember Michaela, but didn't know where she went. From there the trail, according to Michaela's mother, is practically non-existent, although she has expressed the opinion that Michaela may have been taken to the UAE. Truly sad.
