Facebook says helping Oslo police in missing girl case

Facebook said Thursday it is cooperating with Norwegian authorities who are probing the disappearance of a teenage girl after police earlier said the website had refused them access to her account.

During a press briefing on the investigation into the missing girl, Oslo police inspector Hanne Kristin Rohde said investigators had "for the time being received a 'no' from Facebook regarding access and insight into her account."

But Facebook told AFP in an emailed statement that it had been assisting police in the investigation.

"We've been cooperating with the police within a matter of minutes of them contacting us and are supplying them with further information relevant to the investigation," the statement said, without providing further details.

Sixteen-year-old Sigrid Schjetne disappeared on her way home late Saturday.
