This last worrying call made by one of the French women untraceable in Greece on the day of their disappearance

The families of the two French women who disappeared in Greece have not had any news for a week. But on Friday June 14, one of them had a less than reassuring exchange with the manager of the hotel where she was staying.

Since Friday June 14, two French women have been missing on the island of Sikinos, Greece. Searches are underway on this small Cyclades island to find Françoise Boutteaux and Marie-Pierre Arfel, aged 73 and 64. Five days after their disappearance, concern grew, and this Wednesday, June 19, two relatives of Marie-Pierre Arfel took the plane towards the island where she disappeared.

Relatives have not had any news since Wednesday June 12. “I was the last one to have had contact with themtells TF1 Juliette, the niece of Marie-Pierre Arfel. It was Tuesday evening, on the phone. But since Wednesday morning, we have more news.

In an exchange that was obtained France Info, we discover that the day the two women, who had met there, disappeared, one of them, Françoise Boutteaux, had a telephone conversation with the owner of the hotel where she was staying.

She actually tried to contact the hotel three times around 6 a.m. The owner explains that she finally answered at 8:24 a.m. when he called back, he explains that he had difficulty communicating with the French tourist, because of the language barrier. “She spoke French, I only speak English and Greek. She didn’t understand me, she seemed lost,” he explains.

A photo of her lying down then nothing

Then, in a message exchange, she says she fell and sends him a photo where she is lying. Then nothing. An exchange all the more worrying as it would have been the last time the Frenchwoman used her phone.

Local authorities managed to determine the area where the two French women disappeared, in the south of the island. Research has been launched. Authorities fear the walkers were trapped in a steep and arid area.

Their disappearance occurs in a heatwave context in Greece. Three foreign tourists were found dead in Greece in one week. Most of these people had undertaken hikes under the blazing sun.
