Police appear to have made a breakthrough in a week old search for a missing nine-year-old schoolgirl. They said on Thursday that they had detained a man suspected of being linked to her disappearance. At the same time, police have returned in mass to the scene of the girl’s disappearance, the Prague suburb of Troja, with digging and excavation equipment. A nationwide search for the girl, who disappeared on her way home from school on October 13, has involved up to 800 police, sniffer dogs and special heat seeking equipment. The internet news site novinky.cz said police were led to the suspect, who has a criminal record, thanks to DNA samples left on the girl’s belongings.
