It seems to be standard practice to contact the consular authorities when a child goes missing on foreign soil. 

Just as it appears to be standard practice for newspapers to carry reader comment criticising the parent.  As well as taking it to facebook to let off some steam.

At the moment these are outweighed by positive and supportive comment ... I just hope Maeyls  is recovered safe and well very soon ... or we may witness history repeating itself.
It is so easy to kick people when they are down.

After reading the news in question; About the disappearance of a child, it seems to me that there was a lot of distraction and irresponsibility of the Relatives, because it was on Saturday night and only went to inform the Authorities on Sunday, it seems to me that they first paid more attention to the Feast than to the child .

"The alert was given on Sunday morning." The alert was given by the authorities in particular by the police not by the parents ... When a child or adult disappears in France the authorities alert the media as soon as possible to send photos / information about the missing person in order to alert the population and obtain Information or witnesses. So stop blaming parents, in this case the mother, who poor thing must be suffering horrors with the disappearance of the daughter ...

Thank you for this update Brietta.
I do hope she is found soon but it's worrying as time passes.
I agree with you about those folks who so quickly criticise.

Update

France fears for girl Maelys missing since Isere wedding



Concern is growing over the fate of a nine-year-old girl who vanished while attending a wedding in eastern France. The girl, MaŽlys De Araujo, was last seen in a children's room at about 03:00 on Sunday (01:00 GMT). Extensive searches of the area around the wedding hall using a helicopter and police dogs have thus far failed to find a trace of the girl.

A kidnapping investigation has begun and police have issued an appeal for witnesses.



Police have already interviewed all 180 attendees at the wedding, which took place in a hall in Pont-de-Beauvoisin, IsŤre. Reports say they will now begin questioning friends and relatives of the girl and her family who did not attend.

MaŽlys was at the wedding along with her mother - cousin of the bride - father, and older sister. They are said to live in the nearby department of Jura.

A guest, Gregory, told Le Parisien news site what had happened when guests realised the girl was missing.

"The DJ for the evening announced on the microphone that a child had disappeared. Suddenly, everyone started searching, in the main hall and outside.

"It was anguish. To see the disappearance of a nine-year-old, that's not nothing. We initially thought she must be asleep in a corner after a game of hide-and-seek. After an hour, as we'd found nothing, the police were alerted." Gregory said he believed that a kidnapping had taken place. Reports also say police dogs failed to find any scent of the girl beyond the car park of the wedding hall, suggesting the girl did not run away.

Police, firefighters and volunteer firefighters have searched woodland nearby, a nearby river and even sewers.

"Given the time that has elapsed since her disappearance" and "the means deployed to find her, no accidental or criminal track has been ruled out," said a local prosecutor, Dietlind Baudoin, in a statement. Police have appealed for witnesses to come forward to help find MaŽlys, who they say is 130cm tall (4'3"), weighs 28kg (4st 6lb), has dark skin, brown eyes and hair, and was wearing a white sleeveless dress.

Fears missing girl, 9, 'bundled into car by kidnappers’ while playing hide-and-seek

A NINE-YEAR-OLD girl who has gone missing at a wedding in France may have been bundled into a car by kidnappers, police fear.

Officers fear a criminal act because sniffer dogs found Maelys’ scent in the hall and out into the car park – but it ended there.

Isn't that what happened with Madeleine McCann?  Scent trail ended at car park.
