The alert was given around midnight in Strasbourg. A passerby saw a group of ten teenagers diving into the Ill river, near the Chanoine Winterer quay, not far from the European quarter. But one of them, aged 17, has not recovered, or at least remains untraceable.
Divers carried out searches until 2:45 am, before stopping them. They should resume this morning, tells 20 Minutes a police source. At the same time, an investigation was opened: the witness will be questioned and the video protection scrutinized.
This disappearance comes a few days after the tragedy that occurred in Sélestat, already in the Ill. The body of a 14-year-old was found on Wednesday. In Strasbourg, swimming in the Ill is prohibited.
