Interrogations Yield No New Leads

The interrogations of suspects in the disappearance of Birna Brjánsdóttir, the 20-year-old Icelandic woman who disappeared early Saturday morning, have yielded no new leads that help the investigation, according to Chief Superintendent Ásgeir Þór Ásgeirsson, Vísir reports.

Three crew members of the trawler Polar Nanoq from Greenland have been interrogated by police. All three are suspected of having information regarding Birna’s disappearance.

“We didn’t received any leads, new ones, [that is,] overnight,” Ásgeir told Vísir.

“We’re ready to react if something new comes out of the interrogations… We focus [the search] on the Reykjanes peninsula today and work from what we find potentially likely. That’s all we’ve got.”

Rescue workers will continue to search in the Strandarheiði area on Reykjanes, assisted by search dogs. A statement from the police yesterday explained that search areas are prioritized based on tips received from the public.
