Kadia Diawara mysteriously vanished on May 26. His family alerted the Gendarmerie a few days later and an appeal for witnesses was launched.
After the telephone of the Valserhone resident had been lost, it was found that there was no way to contact him. Heavily armed with a helicopter, research was conducted in this area.
Le Progres says that it was ultimately a Gendarmerie Patrol that saw his car under the D18 between Samognat and Izernore on June 7. The young woman's body was found inside. The death of the young woman was accidental according to the initial findings by the gendarmes.
