Indian found backpack
A man who was planting rice along the riverside with his wife discovered the backpack as they went inside the water to cool down. They where aware of the fact that Lisanne and Kris where missing from Boquete and the recognised their name on the insurance card. They immediately contacted their neighbour from Boquete who alerted the local authorities. A helicopter took off from Boquete with on board Officer of Justice Betzaida Pittí and from that moment on things got quiet. Because of the continuously bad weather conditions the team got disconnected from the people on the ground. It was only Saturday just before noon the team was able to reach the department of justice in David.
In the meantime there has been a short press-conference in which Betzaida Pittí has shared more information regarding their findings. We will share more details .
Both families reacted to the news with great expectations from within The Netherlands and are hopeful about this first actual ‘lead’ in the mysterious disappearance of Lisanne and Kris since the beginning of April. The investigation can continue from this point forward.
Please contact the spokesperson of both families Froon and Kremers for any questions following this press release, Nikki van Passel +31 (0)6 300 430 40
