Here's one of the victims personified

Krekar takes to tears in court

After drying his tears in court today, he points out that where he himself comes from, the judge shouldn't be affected neither by laughter, nor by tears.

As Sigrid is still missing the Oslo police now regards the case as a crime case, after search started early last Sunday

The police says she has "
fair, brown hair" while photos show her hair is dark brown.

One of the first photos showed a blond looking Sigrid.

Why is her hair in other pictures dark and not fair? Is she truly blond? She has blue eyes. Did her parents out of instinct tell the police that their daughter has fair hair, and then later the police added "brown"? Could it be dyed? Did she choose to dye it? Why?

- We have given the police all the information they have asked for
