Rescuers searching for German girl gone missing in Domažlice region

Czech and German rescuers searched overnight without success for an eight-year-old German girl who went missing Sunday on Čerchov Hill in the Domažlice region.

A total of some 200 people, mainly firefighters and police officers, took part in the search on both sides of the border, Czech police spokeswoman Veronika Hokrová told ČTK.

Čerchov Hill, just a few kilometres from the border with Germany, is the highest peak in the region, and temperatures dropped to around zero degrees Celsius overnight.
