“What the search team found was a possible location where traces, observed on the edge of the ravine, indicate that a vessel could have been dragged there. This information was passed on to the authorities responsible for the investigations and, for this reason, the place was isolated by the competent authorities so that the search and expertise can be carried out”, says the report signed by the legal prosecutor of Univaja, Eliésio Marubo.
