Slovakia police are tracking four members of a female orchestra group from Afghanistan, missing from their hotel accommodation, after performing at a local festival.

Afghan orchestra “Zohra”, comprising 35 young female musicians, held a concert last Saturday at a festival in Trencin, about 130 kilometers north of Bratislava, near the Czech border.

According to police of Slovakia, four members of the group were reported missing from their hotel accommodation on Sunday.

“I can confirm that the search for two teenage girls and two women from Afghanistan is in the process,” Trencin police spokesman Pavol Kudlicka told AFP.

He said all the members of the group returned to their hotel accommodation after the concert, but was found missing the next day.

“To date, their names can not be disclosed on legal grounds and in view of ongoing investigations,” Kudlicka said.
