New details of the mysterious disappearance in Moscow of 81-year-old actress Svetlana Svetlichnaya, who has not been in touch since October 21, are being clarified. According to TASS, more than 40 volunteers from the Liza Alert search and rescue squad joined the search for the Soviet movie star. Over the past day, they have already pasted more than two thousand leaflets, walked about 30 kilometers on foot and called medical institutions and police departments, but so far all these efforts have yielded no results.
By 7:00 am 42 search engines from the Liza Alert detachment took part in the search activities that are taking place in three administrative districts of Moscow. Svetlana Afanasyevna was not found, the search continues,
– the members of the search and rescue group specified.
At the same time, according to the Shot telegram channel, a resident of Moscow has already contacted the police when she saw a woman who looked like an actress at the Turgenevskaya metro station. According to her, this woman begged for alms from passers-by for an hour and a half, and then proceeded to the Sretensky Boulevard station.
Along with this, information emerged that the day before her disappearance, the Diamond Hand star was worried about her safety and asked for help. On October 20, Svetlichnaya was at the Guild of Actors of Russia and there announced that she was receiving threats.
The door opened – Svetochka came in without a bell. “You are sitting here, and they are mocking me again,” Svetlichnaya told us. “Give me a lawyer, I want to be protected,”
– the chairman of the guild Valeria Gushchina conveyed the words of Svetlichnaya in an interview with Komsomolskaya Pravda.
Gushchina clarified that they then escorted Svetlana to a lawyer, after which they sent her home by taxi. According to Valeria, at the beginning of the month the actress moved to the Losiny Ostrov residential complex to live closer to her son. Gushchina claims that Svetlichnaya herself did not remember the new address (earlier information appeared in the press that the actress suffers from dementia) and her daughter-in-law prompted him by phone. With the taxi driver, they agreed that he would take her to the door.
Today, the police are reviewing footage from CCTV cameras near her home. Svetochka has long been … peculiar. It seems to me that we are looking for a person whom we will never find. The cameras didn't show where she could have gone
– shared Gushchina.
Svetlana Svetlichnaya in her youth
After that, a film crew from the Rossiya channel came to Svetlichnaya. Having filmed the material, the TV crew left, and Svetlana did not get in touch from that moment. Now her phone is still unavailable, but the actress's relatives claim that this has happened before.
She did not go anywhere, she had no one. We called her. Then they came to her house with the keys. They opened the door. No mess, things, a backpack with documents and money in place. But Svetlana Afanasyevna herself is not,
– the words of the daughter-in-law of the actress Olga “Komsomolskaya Pravda”.
Recall that a man who introduced himself as her son told the police the day before that Svetlana Svetlichny was missing. At the same time, the actress's 60-year-old son, Alexei Ivashov, said in an interview with Gazeta.ru that he had not contacted the police and did not communicate with his mother. Along with this, Svetlichnaya's manager Sergei Rublev, as well as her close friends, argue that there is nothing to worry about.
She does not get in touch because she is old. I wouldn't worry now. She lives “in her attitude”, as is the case with the elderly,
– assured Rublev in a conversation with RBC.
