Her family hasn't heard from her since Saturday, her father Wim van Luijk said in a Facebook post, that has since been shared nearly 8 thousand times.
No Dutch people were killed or hurt in plane crash in Cuba on Friday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirmed based on information from the Cuban authorities, ANP reports.
The plane crashed shortly after taking off in the Cuban capital of Havana. 110 people were killed and three of the injured are in critical condition.
The cause of the crash is not yet known. The team investigating the crash found one of the plane's black boxes on Saturday.
The plane involved is a Cubana de Aviacion Boeing 737-200. It was flying from Havana to Holguin.
After over 50 years of fighting, a peace agreement was reached in Columbia between the FARC guerrilla movement and the government. "This is a definitive break with the war", Dutch guerrilla fighter Tanja Nijmeijer said in a first reaction to the Volkskrant. But she adds that this is not set in stone and there still more work to be done.
