As sad as it sounds, we may have to start preparing ourselves for the possibility that she may never be found.

This French lady has disappeared leaving behind a mystery at the moment. I could speculate but what good is that, let the events take their course.

No, it is not. They are looking for the dead body instead of a living woman. Nothing say she is dead.

I hope she is found alive and well.

@Cricky, we read a lot of speculation here, and it's nice to see you're not jumping on the bandwagon. Like Dukeleto, I hope she's found alive and well. But she's epileptic, and if she doesn't have her meds with her...

Where's the picture of the missing woman? Probably a lot more helpful in trying to find her than of the police searching in the river.

That's a long time to be lost unless she doesn't want to be found or took the big out. Hoping for the best.

Very strange activity on the photo, guys in wetsuits in knee-deep river. Do they hope to find the woman under some stone? The police better to look into hills along the river, a lot of trails Tiphaine could go. I've ben there several times, many nice paths for a walk.

Unless she ran or was kidnapped, I'm sorry to say it is unlikely she'll be found alive after such a long time. Of course, I hope I'm wrong.

I was in Nikko over the holidays, her poster in was plastered almost everywhere in the station, in shops, at tourist areas, information counters etc.

Not under one. But wedge between them by the current. They look in the water (note the masks & snorkels) as the surface turbulence may limit visibility from above.

“Very strange activity on the photo, guys in wetsuits in knee-deep river. Do they hope to find the woman under some stone?”

Nothing strange about it whatsoever. In addition to what OssanAmerica wrote, they are also looking for any objects that she may have had with her. Was it yesterday or the day before her family made a big fuss about seeing in a river what they thought was her cell phone? It was found to be a digital camera belonging to someone else.

They already have, some time ago.

I don't think so. The river is very shallow there and it's unlikely that the body (though I still hope it won't end like that) will stuck between stones unnoticed for such a long time.

It's more likely the police are searching for some belongings, as @Educator60 said, but chances are really negligible. Anyway I still hope the'll find her.

Why are they 'resuming' the search? Did they stop once? And if so, why?

Believe what you want. I've seen it.

Because resources are finite and sometimes the police have more pressing things to deal with? All searches have a set limit to the amount and time that they can dedicate resources to it.

Also, new information might have come into play so they started the search again. The police can't just blindly search everywhere until they eventually find her. At almost a month missing, its likely just going to be a body recovery anyways.
