New leads spark new search for missing Swiss twins

New leads have sparked a massive search for Swiss twin girls, missing since their father disappeared with them more than two months ago from their hometown of Lausanne.
Swiss police said Thursday an international search team made up of 145 police officers and investigators and 26 sniffer dogs has swept an area where the Boiron River flows into Lake Geneva near Morges in Switzerland. The search team also utilized an underwater remote-controlled vehicle.
The 6-year-olds Alessia and Livia Schepp disappeared from nearby Lausanne on Jan. 30 in the company of their father Matthias Schepp. He later killed himself in Italy.
Police say witnesses have come forward to say they saw a man pulling a suitcase near Boiron beach on the day the girls went missing.
The search will resume Friday.
