The 85-year-old woman left her home in Marupe, outside Riga, on March 13 or 14, and never came back. On March 15, police posted a public announcement of her disappearance on Facebook.
The missing woman is 175 centimeters tall, slender, with long red hair. She was probably dressed in a winter coat, hat and white winter boots.
Police spokeswoman Gita Gzibovska told LETA that a murder investigation has been started because there are suspicions that the women might have become a victim of crime. The former prosecutor is currently being searched in Latvia as there are no indications that she might be in a foreign country.
Although investigators are examining various theories, including that Loze has been murdered in a robbery, one of the theories link her disappearance to her former job as a prosecutor.
