The mother of missing twin girls has flown from Switerzland to Corsica to help in the police search.

Irina Lucidi says she has still not given up hope that the six-year-olds will be found alive and well.

The alarm was raised when Livia and Alessia Schepp’s father Matthias failed to return them after a custody weekend two weeks ago.

Searches are underway in Corsica, where the family holidayed together in 2008.

Schepp was seen here with the girls after they disappeared from Switzerland.

A local woman claims to have spotted the twins and their father along with a mystery blonde woman.

Matthias Schepp wrote to his estranged wife at the beginning of February to tell her he had killed the girls.

He then threw himself under a train at this station in Italy.

His car has been found but it’s GPS is missing.

Police want to find it to trace the vehicle’s exact route.
