    Search for missing Swiss twins brings Italian TV crew to Ottawa

    OTTAWA — Journalists with an Italian television program are in Ottawa this week, asking for locals’ help as they investigate the case of missing twin Swiss children and their Canadian-born father, CTV reported Monday.

    The girls, six-year-old twins named Alessia and Livia Schepp, were kidnapped and taken from the Swiss village where they lived by their father, Matthias Kaspar Schepp, in February 2011. The crime prompted an international manhunt that only grew more intense after the father killed himself in southern Italy a few days after the kidnapping. The children, however, were never found despite pleas of the girls’ mother.

    Three years later the case had grown cold, until, as CTV put it, “a mysterious letter” was delivered to the Italian TV program Chi L’Ha Visto. The letter, written in Italian, reportedly says “the twins are alive and they are living in Canada, in Ottawa city and Lachute,” according to CTV. It goes on to say someone in Italy may have helped smuggle the children out of Europe.

    “I ask your help to find out if this story is true,” Ercole Rocchetti, a journalist with the TV program, told CTV. “If you can see one of those children. It’s really important for us and for the family.”

    The TV crew has already been to Lachute, Que., meeting with schools.

    “We are in Ottawa to speak to the police, to make this appeal to the television,” Rocchetti said, asking anyone who may know about the children to contact CTV Ottawa or the Italian television program at
