Oslo police have now collected more than 1,700 tips regarding the disappearance of 16-year-old Sigrid Giskegjerde Schjetne and call the public’s involvment in the case “fantastic.” They’re continuing their investigation into the teenager’s disappearance 10 days ago, while volunteers keep searching as well.

Some volunteer divers planned to search the waters of easily accessible areas along the Oslo Fjord, while others continue to comb local lakes and the neighborhood where Schjetne was believed to be walking home after a visit with a girlfriend.

Police also said they were now searching for a dark red or burgundy-coloured car seen near a day care center where police already found a few of Schjetne’s belongings, including her mobile phone, shoes and a sock.

Her parents now have a publicly appointed attorney to represent them, Harald Stabell, and he said they hope police will be able to pinpoint where she may have been kidnapped around midnight Saturday a week ago.

Police are already tracing activity on her phone, analyzing her belongings and tracking her movements the evening when she was last seen.
