The Reykjavík Metropolitan Police department has posted a statement on Facebook, asking drivers whose cars are equipped with cameras for assistance in the investigation of the disappearance of Birna Brjánsdóttir, the 20-year-old woman who has been missing since Saturday.
The goal of the request is to determine the location of a red Kia Rio between the hours of 7 am and 11:30 am Saturday, January 14. The car in question was rented by the suspects in the case.
Drivers, who during that time frame traveled in Southwest Iceland, that is, in an area including the capital area, Reykjanes peninsula, or as far east as Selfoss, or as far north as Borgarfjörður, are asked to review the footage in their vehicles for any sign of a red Kia Rio.
A number of drivers, not least professional ones, are known to possess such video cameras.
The police statement reads, “Those who have such cameras and who wish to send footage to the police are asked to note the following:
The material must have been reviewed to check for the presence of a car which may fit the description [of a red Kia Rio].
The timing of the event must be noted.”
Reviewing videos is very time consuming, which is why those requirements are made.
