French police, who are searching for a two-year-old who disappeared from his ancestral garden in the French Alps, said on Saturday they had no idea what could happen to him. A witness said the boy, Emile, was last seen across the street from his grandfather’s house — located in a remote mountain outpost with just 24 people — on Saturday afternoon.
The police and gendarmerie entered every building in the settlement. The local governor’s office said on Twitter that about 500 volunteers also helped search for Emil in the woods and fields around the village. “At this point, we have no evidence that would allow us to follow a certain theory (about his whereabouts),” the local prosecutor told France Info radio.
Over the weekend, French authorities opened a helpline and released a photo of the boy, a yellow rose hidden behind his ear. BFM TV said authorities were using a recorded audio message from Emily’s mother that was broadcast over loudspeakers from a helicopter in the search area.
French media reported that the boy disappeared while his grandparents were getting ready to board the car.
