The place is close to the Brazilian girl’s home. According to witnesses she was in company with an older man.
According to the police, Vicentini is blonde and has brown eyes. She stands 5 feet, 7 inches and weighs about 140 pounds. Some identifying signs: a tattoo of an angel on the back and another of a tiger on the stomach.
At the time of her disappearance, she was wearing white jeans and a blue Hugo Boss jacket. The man who left with her seemed to be in his 30s and has salt-and-pepper hair.
