The family of a Canadian girl, who’s thought to be missing in Syria, are flying into Damascus to help search for her.
32-year-old Nicole Vienneau was due to fly home on Monday – but she’s been missing for six weeks.
Her brother and boyfriend are travelling to Damascus, and will be met by the Canadian Ambassador. Back home, the Syrian Ambassador rushed through free visas to help them get into the country quickly.
They will start their search in the capital, before travelling up to Hama, where Nicole was last seen at the start of April. She was staying at the popular backpacker hotel, the Cairo Hotel, in the centre of Hama.
Two unidentified corpses have been found, but her brother Matthew is sure neither of them are Nicole, because of the dates they died.
