    Police spread pictures of important witness in disappearance of 23-year-old woman

    The Antwerp police have issued an investigation report to find out the identity of an important witness in the disappearance of Julie Van Espen, the 23 year-old-woman who went missing on Saturday evening.

    The Antwerp police have circulated five pictures of a man who seems to be walking around with a large backpack. Anyone who recognises the man, or knows where he is staying is asked to contact the police via the free of charge number 0800/30.30.0, or to email to opsporingen@police.belgium.eu.

    On Saturday, Julie Van Espen left her home in Schilde around 18:30 by bike to meet with friends in Antwerp, but she never arrived.

    Some of her things were found on Sunday, after which the public prosecutor’s office started a murder investigation.
