Missing man’s Facebook profile ‘active’ this week
ACTIVITY on Mikus Alps’ Facebook profile since he went missing is forming part of the police’s investigation into what has happened.
Posts on the Help Ukrainian Defenders CI Facebook group he set up show someone apparently using Mr Alps’ account as recently as Monday 15 January approving join requests.
A car belonging to the 33-year old Latvian national was found burnt out at Petit Bot on Monday 8 January. It was later confirmed that it contained human remains and a shotgun.
The widely used social media platform allows users to create a profile with a name and personal information attached.
From the profile, users are able to create and act as administrators for groups, events and fan pages.
Facebook profiles are password protected, but it is possible Mr Alps shared this information with someone else who has logged in with his details or that another person created the profile in the first place.
Invitations can also be sent out from a profile inviting people to join a group. A delayed response to these invitations could also explain the recent activity seen on Mr Alps’ page.
Guernsey Police chief officer Patrick Rice said yesterday that the force was aware of the activity.
