Kuurne, In an attempt to politically France to wake up and have to convince in Corsica a quest to start for the missing Kevin Vanneste (30) from Kuurne, pull Kuurns mayor Francis Benoit Tuesday to the North of france, Marcq-en-Baroeul. Together with the local mayor, Bernard Gerard, he wants to be at a press conference in France, attention and efforts to the missing thirty-something to find.

Kevin Vanneste departed on 14 september to Corsica and the GR20 to discover one of Europe's toughest hiking trails of about 170 miles long, on rough terrain with steep rocky trails. Two days later he disappeared from the radar. Despite the efforts of the Belgian police, the public prosecutor, the Cell Missing Persons and authorities clash in France on a wall. It argues there – completely different than in Belgium - that someone has the right to disappear, to the great frustration and misunderstanding in our country. Meanwhile started Kuurns mayor Francis Benoit with the mother of the missing Kevin crowdfunding in the hope of some 7,000 euros to pick up, so that with their own team in Corsica can be sought.

cry for help

Benoit try his weight as mayor now also in the bowl to throw to the issue of missing persons abroad – in the first instance, in France - on the political agenda. He took in a friend of mayor Bernard Gerard of Marcq-en-Baroeul a party in France to put pressure. “A cry for help to the French government to search,” said Benoit. Mayor Bernard Gerard was until 2017 French parliamentary. “There are three reasons why I as the mayor committed”, it sounds. “Out of solidarity with Kuurne, empathy with the families of the missing and for the sake of the question immediately a research and searches to start at the French authorities.”


Francis Benoit wrote already a letter to French president Macron with the question of priority of the search. Without a result. Those who want to contribute to the crowdfunding for the search for Kevin, can deposit to account number BE 87 973 357 586 894 of the non-profit SOS Dhunche 2015 stating ‘Find Kevin’.
