On the night of Monday to Tuesday, 27-year-old Anastazja Rubińska from Wrocław went missing on the island of Kos. – We are in constant contact with the Greek police and with the relatives of the missing woman – says junior aspirant Rafał Jarząb from the Wrocław police. The Greek media, which extensively inform about the case, report the arrest of a 32-year-old man who was allegedly related to the disappearance of a Polish woman.
Anastasia and her partner went to the Greek island of Kos, where they both worked. – On Tuesday, June 13, the woman’s parents were called by her partner and reported her missing. The parents informed the Wrocław police, and we confirmed that the Greek officers are actually conducting search activities – reports young asp. Rafał Jarząb from the Wrocław police.
He points out that the Wrocław policemen are “in constant contact” with their counterparts from Greece and assured them of their readiness to cooperate. – All activities are currently carried out by Greek officers – Jarząb tells us.
The Polish consulate in Greece also collects information about the disappearance of a Polish woman on an ongoing basis. – All the latest information from the Greek services is forwarded to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on an ongoing basis – we heard during a telephone conversation with the Consular Section of the Polish Embassy in Athens.
A broken trail
Petros Vasilakis, a spokesman for the Greek police, told us in a telephone conversation that currently – due to the good of the activities carried out – the officers do not talk about their findings.
“The only official position we can give at this time is that the search is ongoing. We make sure that the relatives of the missing Polish woman are informed about the actions taken. The details of the case reported by the Greek media come from unofficial sources and therefore I cannot comment on their content, Vasilakis said.
The Greek media devote a lot of space to the case. They report that Anastasia worked with her partner in one of the Greek hotels. On Monday, unlike him, she had the day off. She was to spend the evening near the beach in Marmari. Around 10.30 p.m., she was supposed to call the man and say that she had been drinking alcohol and that a friend would drive her home on a motorcycle. However, that did not happen.
Anastasia was then supposed to – according to Greek journalists – send her partner her GPS location asking him to pick it up. The man was supposed to go to the indicated place, but he did not find his partner. The 27-year-old also did not answer the phone. According to local media, the 27-year-old’s phone logged on for the last time soon after – a few kilometers from where she was supposed to wait for her partner.
The trail has since disappeared. According to the accounts of witnesses interviewed by Greek journalists, Anastasia bought alcohol in one of the markets in Marmari. Then five men were to join her Bangladesh and Pakistan (their identities have already been established by the police). With one of them – according to the Greek media – Anastasia was to leave on a motorcycle.
Appeal for help
A message about Anastasia’s disappearance was issued by one of the Greek foundations, which indicated that it provided the personal data of the missing woman after consulting her relatives. We read in it that the missing woman has blonde hair and brown eyes. At the time of her disappearance, she was wearing a pink floral dress, blue sunglasses, and carrying a silver backpack.
The police – according to the Newsbomb portal, on which many other local websites base their reports – detained a 32-year-old resident of Bangladesh in the case. The man claimed that he spent the evening with a Polish woman and then left her at the hotel. According to journalistic reports, the cameras in the indicated place did not record Anastasia. During the search, the officers found the 32-year-old a plane ticket to Italianbought after the disappearance of the Polish woman.
Journalists of the Greek CNN, in turn, report that the Greek policemen dealing with the case are combing the area of the missing woman using drones and specially trained dogs. On Saturday, a mobile phone was found, which – according to CNN – belongs to the missing Polish woman.
According to journalists, the 32-year-old detained in the case could have known the Polish woman before. The officers cited by CNN are to emphasize that the action is complicated because the area is full of wells and other hard-to-reach places.
