There have been no major events bringing them much nearer to solving the case, however. Rohde was quick to point out the sock is the missing 16-year-old’s but it "does not confirm any more than that her sock was found there." The sock found in Skullerud woods was not a match.

Rohde was quick to point out the sock is the missing 16-year-old’s but it "does not confirm any more than that her sock was found there." The sock found in Skullerud woods was not a match.

At today’s press conference, she also said police have now received between 1,000 and 1,100 tips from the public, but none that have brought them significantly nearer to finding Sigrid .

Moreover, officers have said they were looking for a car that was parked on Låvevien, as well as a silver/grey golf, but have little more on these matters for now.

“There are many reasons why the public haven't contacted us about this. The owner(s) of the car(s) have not been in touch", declared the Inspector, adding she could "not confirm that Sigrid had been picked up in a car."

Access to Sigrid’s Facebook account is still limited too, with Rohde informing reporters they “are in contact with the USA as we have less access to her account than we need. There are things that could be relevant to the Norwegian police in this investigation and we need direct access."

Meanwhile, officers are still sifting through and sorting current information to try to find some further clues, and they have received several tips from people who had attended a party in the area Sigrid went missing.

"We have to keep all of our options open. There is an absolute possibility of finding Sigrid alive,” confirmed Hanne Kristin Rohde.

Police will be maintaining the same pace of their investigation this weekend, but conferences will cease.

“The scale of the investigation is not being reduced. We are doing more, but just in different areas/ways,” she concluded.
