Slovak goes missing in Caucasus, believed kidnapped

A SLOVAK woman working as an interpreter for the Prague-based Organisation for Aid to Refugees went missing in early June in the Caucasus Mountains, Russia, Martin Rozumek of the organisation told the news wire TASR.

Miriam Jeviková, living in Prague, was last seen in Piatigorsk (southern Russia) on May 23. She set out to see friends in Ingushetia and Chechnya and it is believed she was kidnapped along the way.

The last anyone heard from her was probably her June 1 SMS written in broken Russian to Ingushetia, saying she was “being dragged for two hours through a field".

Rozumek turned to the Caucasus's humanitarian organisation Memorial and the Slovak embassy in Moscow for help.

Memorial workers have so far failed to get any information about Jeviková at hospitals and intend to retrace the presumed route of her journey.
