The more days pass, the more hopes of finding Lina dwindle. The 15-year-old has not given any sign of life since Saturday morning when she was last seen by two witnesses on the way from her home to the Saint-Blaise-La-Roche train station. She had to take a train to join her boyfriend, Tao, 19, in Strasbourg. Since the appearance of the young man in the media, some users of social networks have decided to make him the ideal culprit. Lina's mother decided to speak up for him.

"We want this nightmare to stop"
"Tao doesn't live it well. It's the recurrence of wickedness that's really hard to bear. Everything is difficult, the ordeal itself is already unbearable, it should not happen so when it happens to you, there is no word. It is a pain that crushes you, it is a permanent fear, it is day and night, it does not leave you. We want this nightmare to stop, that's why it's not worth adding more by peddling gossip, nastiness ...", she slips.
"Tao has been tearing himself away from the beginning. It is we who must slow it down to preserve it and secure it too. Tao is human like everyone else, at some point, we can no longer absorb... Even if we try to detach ourselves as much as possible, it ends up hurting," she says.
New beatings mobilized Thursday 80 gendarmes in Saint-Blaise-la-Roche and in the neighboring village of Saulxure but did not discover conclusive clues as part of the investigation into the disappearance of Lina.
