Life in limbo for schoolgirl victim.

Life in limbo for schoolgirl victim THE schoolgirl rape victim was determined to track down evil De Alves, and even considered hiring a private detective to track him down.

Frustrated by an initial lack of progress in the manhunt a year after he fled, her mum said that the teenager was frustrated that the trail seemed to have gone cold.

"For my daughter, her life is in limbo," she said at the time. "She cannot move on while the man who abused her is walking free.

"She is due to receive money from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Board and plans to hire a private detective.

"We couldn't believe he was allowed bail after being charged, as he was a foreign national who could easily slip abroad.

"My daughter has been so brave and is now slowly rebuilding her life. We are all so proud of her - but she deserves justice."
