Last resort. The columnist at the head of Zone Mazaurette in the Daily program broadcast on TMC, Maïa Mazaurette, has just made a call for help on Twitter. The reason ? His father, suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, has been missing for several hours. The young woman reported this disappearance on her Twitter account in the event that her subscribers could help her. According to her message, it was a “desperate move” that prompted her to post a photo of her dad along with the message: “This is my father, Olivier, who has Alzheimer’s disease. He disappeared for five hours now in Berlin (Mitte district). He wears a sort of burgundy bomber jacket. The police and the embassy have been notified. He has no money, no papers, no phone.
Insisting on the urgency of the situation and very worried about what could happen to her father, Maïa Mazaurette also wrote a second tweet in her thread. “He must be hungry and cold, not to mention tired. We’ve been looking for hours and we’re out of ideas. If you see him, contact me (or call the police).” In the replies to these tweets, many netizens give advice on how to spread the message everywhere, including on Facebook pages of expats in Germany. Others are content to write a message of support by expressing the wish that the father of Maïa Mazaurette be quickly found.
