Swiss twins' father mailed euros - uncle

Geneva - An uncle of the missing Swiss twins says the girls' mother received €5 000 in mailings from their father before he was found dead in an apparent suicide in Italy.

Dr Valerio Lucidi told reporters on Tuesday the girls' family interprets this as a bad sign because when they heard the father withdrew €7 000 in Marseilles, they hoped he had used it to pay for childcare after the girls went missing January 30.

"This worries us a lot," said the Belgian surgeon whose sister, Irina Lucidi, was separated from her husband, Matthias Kaspar Schepp. His body was found with only about €100 on him.

Lucidi said the girls were last seen playing with a neighbour's child more than a week ago in Lausanne where they lived and could be anywhere from Switzerland to Italy.
