Interpol have launched a global alert for the missing girls to all 188 member countries.

Helicopters, mounted police and tracker dogs have joined police in searching around Cerignola in the southern region of Puglia for Alessia and Livia Schepp.

Their 43-year-old father, Matthias Kaspar Schepp, committed suicide at Cerignola station in Italy on Friday. He is also believed to have been in France.

He had snatched the twins from their home in western Switzerland last Sunday and driven them away in a car belonging to his estranged wife Irina, 44.

Over 30 Swiss police officers are now searching for the girls.

A further two other policemen have gone to Marseille in southern France to follow up leads there.

The children’s mother, who is Italian, went to French police in Marseille, from where her husband had sent her a postcard on January 31, the day after he took the children.

He had said he was desperate and could not live without her.

Swiss police said he had drawn large sums of money out of cash machines in Marseille.

Anyone with information on the twins has been asked to contact the Swiss investigating authorities on +41 21 644 82 31 or their nearest police station.
