  • Description

    NEARLY THREE DAYS AFTER THEY DISAPPEARED THERE IS STILL NO NEWS ABOUT THE FATE OF THE THREE LITTLE FRENCH CHILDREN KIDNAPPED BY CAR ON THEIR WAY FROM SCHOOL NEAR POITIERS. FEARS ARE GROWING FOR THEIR SAFETY.

    MORE THAN 600 FRENCH TROOPS, GENDARMES AND FARM WORKERS ARE NOW COMBING THE WOODS NEAR THEIR VILLAGE OF MARNAY, THE MINISTER OF THE INTERIOR HAS ORDERED INSPECTION OF ALL UNINHABITED BUILDINGS INTO WHICH THE CHILDREN -- PATRICK AND CHRISTINE GUILLON AND JOEL BIET -- MIGHT HAVE STRAYED.

    ON MONDAY NIGHT, A SATCHEL BELONGING TO ONE OF THE CHILDREN WAS FOUND ON THE ROAD LEADING TOWARDS THEIR HOME. IT STATED THAT INSTRUCTIONS WOULD BE GIVEN TO THE FAMILIES "WITHIN 24 HOURS", BUT THE PERIOD HAS ELAPSED WITH STILL NO WORD FROM THE KIDNAPPERS.

    A FRENCH RADIO STATION "EUROPE NUMBER 1", HOWEVER TODAY ANNOUNCED THAT A RANSOM DEMAND OF ONE MILLION FRANCS HAD NOW BEEN RECEIVED BY M. GUILLON, FATHER OF TWO OF THE KIDNAPPED CHILDREN. FRANCE'S NEW ANTI-CRIME BRIGADE -- DUBBED "FRANCE'S G-MEN" -- HAVE NOW BEEN SENT FROM PARIS TO JOIN POLICE, TROOPS AND FROGMEN IN THE SEARCH OF THE MISSING CHILDREN.
