In Tunisia missing since 18.2.08

The vehicle is striking because höhergelegt, 9.00er XZL tyres, stainless steel sill and snorkel, brown leather seats, Aludachträger, Zurrschienen side, additional tanks and deck space inside.
Wolfgang Ebners and girlfriend, name unknown
are 1 man (about 175, short hair, slim) and 1 woman (slim, schulterlange hair), and 2 shepherd dogs.
The last phone message came from Matmata, they were on the south, possibly towards the border area Algeria, - the exact route is unknown, however.
Getting there was Genoa - Tunis on 9.2.2008
29.2.2008 planned return trip - but they were not on the ferry and have also been since 18.2 Not reported
The embassies in Algeria, Tunisia and Libya were alerted.
If anyone both in Tunisia or Algeria after 18.2. encounters them, then please immediately report to me, the moderator or the embassies! Please also says friends decision on the recently there were, are or will be...
Each tip can be helpful!
1st Wolfgang is actually each year in the Sahara, and I would find him already as described.
2nd No, as far as I know, he had no Satphone
3rd Yes, PC-based GPS navigation
4th We do not know his relatives probably not. Maybe he is there without permission or direction Algeria has been on the
5th He eventually something of a fort "Fatima" or "Fatma" said that he wanted to show his girlfriend - who knows that?
6th Yes, if they were taken in Algeria, I also think that it would be known that - on the other hand Algeria will certainly not fuss because of "lost tourists." The message is, in any case.
7th With the distances in Tunisia is true - it is assumed that both have good foot. If it was an accident, in which both were set battle except perhaps in a little traffic route or outside of it, which also helps.
Post replies and information here please.
