The search for the body of the student Sumanta Bansi, who went missing in February 2018, will continue on Tuesday in the Robbenoordbos in Noord-Holland. The Veterans Search Team travels a large area.

The forest will also be searched next Tuesday. The specialists, who assist the police in large searches, walk through the forest in lines.

New information in the study has led to the area being reviewed. Earlier this month, sonar equipment was used to search for traces of the 23-year-old woman in the water near the forest.

Bansi disappeared from the face of the earth last February. She then studied at the University of Amsterdam (UvA) and also did an internship at a dental practice in The Hague. Shortly before her disappearance, she called her mother with the message that she was pregnant. After an earlier abortion, she was determined to keep the child and was looking forward to becoming a mother.

The police fear that the woman has fallen victim to a crime. For example, her phone, public transport chip card and bank card have not been used since her disappearance, and there are no signs that she has gone abroad. In the case, 15,000 euros were promised for the golden tip. Dozens of tips have already arrived, but the police are hoping for more.
