A 13-year-old girl missing since Sunday afternoon was found dead in a ravine in Trentino Alto Adige, Italy.
According to Italian media reports, Laura Winkler visited her grandfather's house with her parents on Sunday morning. After lunch she left the house for a walk to the center of the town and came back around 3 pm. Around 4 pm the parents decided to leave and go back home, but they couldn't find their daughter anywhere. They searched the area and asked neighbors if they had seen their daughter. When they realized she was missing they called the police. While the parents exclude the possibility that Laura left the house voluntarily, police believes the death was an accident, Italian media reported.
According to police, Laura may have fell after entering a steep area, lost her balance and slid into a ravine. For two days the Alpine rescue team, firefighters, Italian police and the Italian finance police searched the Anterselva di Sotto valley. Scuba divers also searched a small lake in the area. Search teams also used a drone with high resolution cameras.
The body was accidentally found two days later on Tuesday evening by an Alpine rescue team during a training exercise.
After sighting the body in the ravine the team called for backup, which arrived and used a helicopter to transport the body to a local funeral chapel.
An investigation is undergoing to determine what happened in the lead up to the girl's death.
