No response to missing girl’s father’s offer of ransom

In other news: no one has responded to the offer of 3.5 million crowns, or nearly 200,000 US dollars, made by the father of a nine-year-old girl who went missing in Prague on Wednesday. The father offered the money as ransom to potential kidnappers although it’s not clear whether the girl had in fact been kidnapped. The police continue searching for the girl who was last seen in the Prague district of Troja on Wednesday; her bag was later found en route from school to her home. The police have notified the Interpol and stepped up checks at Czech airports. Many volunteers have also joined in the search for the missing girl.
