Three children missing on Russia's Volga river

Rescuers in Russia’s Samara region have resumed the search for three children who went missing from a holiday camp on Saturday. Initial efforts were called off after no traces were found.

The eight-year old girl and her seven and thirteen- year old stepbrothers, were staying with their parents at the resort on an island on the Volga river.

Lifeboats have been sent out to search the area and rescue teams are scouring all the holiday resorts along the stretch of river where the children went missing.

It's thought the children may have drowned, although police say they're looking into the possibility they've been abducted.
