Police in Germany searched a home in Stuttgart in connection with the Cindy Crawford extortion case -- but they would not confirm the apartment belonged to the suspect, Edis Kayalar.

German authorities confiscated several items from the home, but would not say where Kayalar was or whether or not he had been charged in Germany.

Kayalar allegedly tried to extort Crawford and her husband, Rande Gerber, over a photo of their daughter bound to a chair and gagged.

Kayalar has been charged with one count extortion -- he faces two years in the slammer.
