Judicial authorities and a group of Dutch search and rescue specialists with dogs departed by helicopter today to the community of Alto Romero in Bocas del Toro.

There, they will search for additional remains of Dutch women Lisanne Froon and Kris Kremers, who went missing in the area last year. Partial remains of the women were found in that area.

Enrique Arrocha, the lawyer for the Kremers family, said that a group has already entered the area by land. There is also a third group that departed from Rambala, Bocas del Toro.

Arrocha said that the three teams will be working together to cover as much area as possible. First Superior Prosecutor Betzaida Pittí is coordinating the effort, which will include interviews with indigenous residents of the area.

Jerome Van Passel, a spokesman for the families, said they will be traveling to Alto Romero, where remains of the women were found, and that the search will last for seven days.

He added that the climate of Alto Romero is similar to that of other countries where the rescuers have worked, so it will not be dangerous for them or the dogs.

On the probability of finding some remains, the spokesman said that the dogs are able to find skeletal remains up to nine months after death.

Also helping in the search are officials from the national border service Senafront, the national air service Senan, the national police, the Institute of Legal Medicine and the civil defense agency Sinaproc.
