The story of the missing Matej stirs the spirits across the Balkans, he was wearing white slippers

The fourth day of the search for 27-year-old Matej Periš from Split started in Belgrade today. He mysteriously disappeared during a party at the Gothic club on the bank of the Sava River on Friday night, but they only started searching for him on Saturday.


Matej Periš is missing from Friday night.

Let’s remember Matej Periš he went to the Serbian capital with a group of friends to celebrate the end of the year, but on a critical night he disappeared into the unknown. In the first days, Serbian media reported on surveillance camera footage of him on his way to the river, where he was supposed to go to perform a small need, so the most likely theory is that the young man drowned. His father disagrees Nenad Periš, who also went to Belgrade on Sunday and who claims that Matej coached water polo and that he is an athlete. Since there is a relatively high fence in that place along the bank of the Sava, such a thing is unlikely in his opinion, but since then more videos have appeared that place Matej in different places around the city, search campaigns on the river bank and in its riverbeds, however, have so far also given no answers. Yesterday, the competent authorities expanded the search operation, as the Sava flows into the Danube a few hundred meters from the place where Mateja was recorded by cameras.

Who’s on the shots?

Yesterday, with new recordings, brought a new turn in the story. They are supposed to show a young man with a stronger, athletic figure, wearing a T-shirt, walking or running on various streets in the wider vicinity of the Gothic club. They were also seen by his father, who believes that the boy on them could actually be Matthew. The time when the recordings were supposed to be made is slightly different from the timeline given by his friends, but the difference is small and may be purely technical, or his friends may have misjudged when they last saw Matej. There was also a dilemma about the color of the sneakers worn by Matthew. The person in the footage is wearing white slippers, while Matej is said to be wearing black ones that night. According to Serbian and Croatian media today, the information about black slippers given to the police by one of his friends is incorrect. Matthew is supposed to be like that as the person from the recordings wearing white slippers. His friends, six people, have already returned to Croatia today. Serbian police have questioned them several times in recent days, and they also had to pass a polygraph test.

Some media, meanwhile, reported yesterday on another video, which shows a person swimming in the Sava. It was reported that Matej’s father had already confirmed that his son was on it, but Nenad Periš, who doubts that the video was made on a critical night, denied this for the Croatian portal Index. The quality of this recording is relatively poor, but in general there is complete confusion around the recordings and it is not entirely clear where Matej is actually. Serbian police have so far remained silent on the issue. Elder Periš is convinced that one of the shots shows a younger man stopping a taxi but not getting into it, really his son. There are also many testimonies that a man like Matthew has been spotted here and there, but these testimonies raise more questions than they answer.

Stingy with information

Today, the competent authorities are also investigating the bed and banks of the Danube. Matej’s father, meanwhile, spoke for the Croatian portal 24sata. He explained that he had a conversation with the Serbian police yesterday and that with their efforts and professional approach “Absolutely satisfied.” He was told that no new findings had been made yesterday, but that the investigation was going in several directions.

The Serbian Interior Ministry also reported on the disappearance today. If the Balkan tabloids have gone completely crazy by publishing more or less real information and speculations related to the critical night, the ministry is very sparse. They explained that Mateja has been wanted day and night since the moment of the report on his disappearance, and that both criminal investigators and police officers from various police stations and units are participating in the investigation. They also confirmed that they were searching the Sava and the Danube, as well as the banks of both rivers, in patrol boats.
