Ten-year old Nathalie was last seen late at night playing with her step-sister Stacy Lemmens outside a cafe where her parents were drinking. The two girls vanished without a trace. Police have detained 38-year old Abdallah Ait-Oud and charged him with kidnapping. Ait-Oud, who was imprisoned for the rape of his fourteen-year old niece in 1994, is the boyfriend of a waitress at the same cafe and is known to have left the cafe around the same time the girls disappeared. He has denied any involvement with their disappearance. On June 28, more than two weeks after the girls disappeared, their bodies were found near a railway station. An autopsy showed that both girls had been strangled and that Nathalie had been raped as well.
