BRUSSELS – A federal police helicopter was once again deployed in the search for missing Alken woman Ingrid Thoelen (39) on Thursday afternoon.
The search continues for the woman and her ex-boyfriend Saverino Strusi (35), who have been missing since Monday 10 September.
The two, who lived together in Vreren (Tongeren), were in a relationship for several years, which ended a few months ago. At 8 pm on the Monday of their disappearance Ingrid Thoelen had an appointment with Strusi in a café in Tongeren to discuss a number of practical matters, dividing up their property for instance. At about 10 pm the couple was still at the home on the Pruimelarenstraat in Vreren.
At about 10.10 pm Thoelen made a phone call to a friend. This last phone call was cause for concern, say police. There has been no sign of life since from either Thoelen or Strusi. Police found letters in Strusi's home which they described as "worrying." Thoelen's car, a blue Peugeot 806 with number plate EUL-419, is also missing.
Investigation has established that Thoelen's last mobile phone signal was received by the GSM mast in Gelmen (Heers). A helicopter was deployed to search the area of Gelmen and Horpmaal in Heers on Wednesday as well but nothing has been found.
