“There is nothing to indicate she left the quayside with the ferry,” police lawyer Kristin Nord-Varhaug tells The Foreigner.

The inspector explains their conclusion is based on the broad scope of their enquiries and technical evidence.

“Statements by the accused and witnesses also reveal disparities,” she adds.

German national 36-year-old Mrs Müller was last seen in the vicinity of Oanes ferry quay on 16th April at approximately 11pm.

Her husband, also a national of Germany, had reported her missing the same day. The 34-year-old was charged with her murder, Monday.

Police started looking for the mother of two on 19th April, making enquiries around where she lived in Eikjeland in Forsand municipality near Sandnes.

The area contains popular tourist hike Pulpit Rock.

An extensive search on land and in waters with the help of fire personnel, dogs, and voluntary organisations failed to provide police with any leads.

It was subsequently called off.

Officers continued their investigations, interviewing witnesses, charting possible sightings and gathering other information from members of the public.

“We started searching their house this Monday, and this operation continues today. We’ve also seized a computer and mobile at the residence and secured the evidence,” says police lawyer Kristin Nord-Varhaug.

“We’re continuing looking for the victim. It’s a very challenging case,” concludes the inspector.

The murder-indicted husband maintains his innocence in the matter. His remand hearing is scheduled for tomorrow.

Police ask people to come forward should they have any information. They can be reached on (+47)-51 89 90 00.
