appearance to our missed friends had been seen in a big
pilgrimage place Pogradec at the Ohrid lake. The report is
being verified by local police authorities. The Czech embassy in
Tirana is ready to a prompt action.
||The plan of the team for
tomorrow is to stay in Shkodar and await the latest results of
the search by albanian police.
||Having stayed overnight in
Theth, the rescue team made themselves on the way back to
Shkodar in the morning and reached the town at 3 PM in the
||A report published by the
Czech Press Agency has denied previous news about the discovery
of the missing people. In between, the rescue team attempted to
reach the Nenmavriq village, where allegedly the missed students
were discovered. However, difficulties on the spot prevented the
rescuers from further action; they had to return back to the
Theth village, where they stayed overnight. At the same time,
two helicopters of albanian police were operating in the area.
||According to an official
anouncement by albanian police, Michal, Lenka and Jan were
discovered in a Dukaagjim village and they are all right. Our
rescue team set out on the journey to the mountains north-eastly
from Shkodar via Koplik, Theth, Lekai, Lotai. Their plan was to
transport the three as fast as possible to the Czech embassy in
Tirana. Although the news sounded very convincing, we await
further confirmation. UNFORTUNATELY, THESE NEWS PROVED LATER
TO BE INCORRECT.
||In the morning hours, a
part of the rescue team checked the way to the Zogai village
westly from Shkodar. The rest of the rescue team committed
themselves to reparation of the jeeps, as these have suffered
due to extremely difficult terrain conditions.

in Fierza. According to unconfirmed news, Jan Pavelka had been
seen there on 5th October but this information can be incorrect.

rescue team confirmed that our friends walked through the Theth
town. One of local Albanians confirmed that he met the missing
students on 10th August; he showed a notice with a contact
address handwritten by Michal Pavelka.

north-eastern Albania. It was proved by Mrs. Toufarova from
Czech embassy, Tirana, that our friends didn^Ńt visit Kruje
town. The Kosovo superintendant from OSN announced that he has
no information about the missing students regarding any offence
