THE boyfriend of missing city student Yulia Solodyankina has said she was “very stressed” in the weeks before she disappeared.
Yulia, who was due to graduate today, has not been see since June 6. Boyfriend Antoine Dao said: “She had been very stressed during her exams. I don’t think she had any problems. Things were good and then boom, she had gone. She had finished her exams, she seemed happy.”
Meanwhile, Yulia’s flatmate has admitted she fears the worst. Alex Amon, 22, was on the same physics course at Edinburgh University as Yulia and the pair shared a flat in South Clerk Street. She said: “What has happened is very out of character. None of us can really understand or explain it. Yulia seemed very excited about her upcoming plans.
“I do not think she would leave of her own accord. I think something must have happened to her. She is very level-headed and responsible.”
