Police say that the father of missing Swiss twins wrote a letter saying he had killed them.

Vaud cantonal (state) police said today that Matthias Kaspar Schepp said in the letter that six-year-olds Alessia and Livia were dead and he would now kill himself.

The letter was sent from Italy on Feb. 3, the same day Schepp was found dead in an apparent suicide.

Police in Switzerland, France and Italy are searching for the girls. The search is focusing on the French island of Corsica.
