Lyon police search for two missing 16-year-old girls

Laure Gorand (L) and Carla Macari (R) have been missing since the beginning of February

Two 16-year-old lycée students from near Lyon have now been “worryingly” missing for a week, the French police nationale has confirmed, as the search continues.

Laure Gorand and Carla Macari have been missing since the beginning of February, with police deeming their disappearance as “worrying” since Monday February 4.

The girls were seen at school - the La Favorite lycée in Sainte-Foy-lès-Lyon - the morning of February 4, but neither student has given “any signs of life” since around 15h the same day.

Ms Gorand is described as dark-skinned with black hair and brown eyes, and a slim-but-muscular build. She was wearing dark trousers and a “fake fur” jacket with red and white stripes when she disappeared.

Ms Macari is described as white, with long light-brown hair, and brown eyes, and a slim build. She was wearing black jeans, white T-shirt, black blouse and black sports shoes when she disappeared.

Anyone with any information, or any suspected sightings of the girls - whether alone or together - is requested to call the police commissioner in Lyon 7 on 04 72 71 57 30 during daytime, working hours, and 04 78 78 40 40 at evenings and weekends.
