French police charge wedding guest over disappearance of 9-year-old girl

French police charge wedding guest over disappearance of 9-year-old girl

Some corners of the French media are reporting that traces of the girl's DNA were found in his vehicle. Lawyer Bernard Meraud said his client's dogs were in the vehicle and "were mentioned during the party" so Maelys and a young boy "as they were playing outside, asked to see them dogs".

"This did not convince the investigative judges, who made a decision to hold him", it added.

A 34-year-old local man, who was among the guests, was remanded in custody Sunday on charges of "kidnapping, illegal confinement or arbitrary detention" after her DNA was found in his auto.

He lives in a village around five miles from Pont-de-Beauvoisin and has convictions for vandalism and drug abuse, but no history of violence or sex crimes.

The 34-year-old, who has not been named, was arrested after Maelys de Araujo's DNA was found in his auto.

Investigators believe the girl may have been taken in a vehicle after three sniffer dogs tracking the scent of her cuddly toy lost the trail in the auto park outside the village hall.

Beaters are checking long grass, bushes, and all other parts of the woods, including waterways.

Many thought Maelys, whose mother was the cousin of the bride, had gone for a sleep after a game of hide-and-seek until the alarm was raised.

Police haven't stopped searching for the girl, questioning 250 wedding guests and enlisting the help of hundreds of volunteers to scour the area.

A source close to the investigation said detectives were initially alerted to the suspect when he was seen "thoroughly cleaning his car" a few hours after Maelys' disappearance.

The DJ for the evening announced on the microphone that a child had disappeared, according to Independent UK.

The man has been charged with "kidnapping, illegal confinement or arbitrary detention of a minor of less than 15 years" by French authorities.

"We are not losing hope to find some trace", gendarme official Jean Pertue told reporters at the scene, in comments shown on BFM television. "We still think that she was probably taken away in a vehicle".

The investigation is ongoing.
