Spain: Rescuers search for infant after finding six-year-old dead at sea


Spanish Rescuers were searching the waters off the coast of Tenerife today looking for a one-year-old girl after retrieving the body of a six-year-old girl – believed to be her sister – from a depth of 1,000 meters, according to APE. Their father, o Thomas Jimeno, is the main suspect for her disappearance of 6-year-old Olivia and one-year-old Anna. The two girls are considered missing since the end of April on this island in the Canary archipelago after sending a last farewell message from their father, who also disappeared, to their mother with whom he had divorced, as he told the French Agency representative of the militia.

The body of the 6-year-old girl, who authorities consider to be Olivia’s most likely, was found near the place where her father’s boat was found sailing. “The corpse is at a depth of 1,000 meters inside a sports bag tied with an anchor. Another empty sports bag was found next to them “, said a court statement. “Pending more forensic evidence, (the corpse) could almost certainly belong to Olivia G.,” the court said.

“I can not even imagine the pain of the mother of little Anna and little Olivia, who went missing in Tenerife, with the terrible news we have just heard,” Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said in a Twitter post. Today at noon (local time, 14.00 Greek time) a minute of silence will be observed in memory of the two brothers at the town hall of Tenerife. In Spain, 39 minors have been murdered by their mother’s father or current or former partner since 2013, according to government data on gender-based crimes.
