Trier / Luxembourg – It’s been five months since Eva Zandbergen (16) disappeared from a clinic in Luxembourg’s capital. Without a wallet, without a cell phone.
“We are now afraid that something has happened to Eva,” says father Cornelius Zandbergen (55) to BILD. Because: The disappearance of the girl on August 20, 2020 has a history.
At the age of 14 Eva met a man (58) from Langsur (Rhineland-Palatinate). The father says that he showered Eva with expensive gifts and had a sexual relationship with her: “She was a slave to him. Every time we fetched her back, he immediately got in touch, gave her a new cell phone. “
Three months before Eva’s disappearance, the desperate parents obtained a temporary ban on contact at the Trier district court, and reported P. for depriving and promoting sexual acts of minors. Therapy in Luxembourg was supposed to help Eva get back to her old life. But then she disappeared from the clinic, leaving all her valuables behind.
There has been no trace of Eva for five months
Eva’s friend Dana Pereira (18) has published an emotional song on YouTube, raps in Luxembourgish: “Come back!” In the pictures in the video clip, Eva laughs, jokes and celebrates with her peers. “I hope she’s in a villa somewhere, in Barcelona or something,” says Dana. She wants her friend to know: “No matter how bad it looks, there are solutions for everything. We can find them. Together.”
Because of the ongoing investigation, neither the Luxembourg nor the German police can say anything about the missing person. This is now with the public prosecutor’s offices in Trier and Diekirch (LU).
Eva’s parents and friends are tormented by many open questions: Where can Eva hide for so long? Who is helping her? Has something happened to her? Who knows anything?
