A large-scale search operation involving around 100 people was underway on Thursday morning in the Inn between the Frauenstein and Ranshofen power plants in the Upper Austrian-Bavarian border area. Passers-by claim to have seen a woman in the water and alerted the police. The missing person is said to be the well-known journalist Alexandra Föderl-Schmid from Klaffer. The 53-year-old deputy editor-in-chief of the Süddeutsche Zeitung was recently confronted with accusations of plagiarism regarding her dissertation work and her use of sources in journalistic texts.

According to reports, the car of the former editor-in-chief of the daily newspaper “Der Standard” was found near the Inn. Objects that can clearly be identified were also seen on the bank and in the water, writes the Passauer Neue Presse, citing “police circles”. There should also be a “farewell letter”.

The Braunau fire department called off the search for the missing person in the Inn in the early afternoon; a search was also carried out for the missing person in the wooded area near the bank.
