silifke - In the mountains at Silifke this morning is searched for traces of missing Joey Hoffmann. The team started all the while with the search, for the heat gets too much.
A special dog has flown from Ankara. It specializes in smelling a body in rugged terrain. That does not mean that the police assume Joey has died, the chief commissioner of the Corps has already stressed against The Telegraph: 'We just want to investigate all options. '
Joey camped in early July with traveling companions Bjorn and Derya Breukers in the hills near the Turkish coastal town. He disappeared without trace. Bjorn and Derya, who are seen as important witnesses in the case, are present at the search.
