Updated 18 November: Carmelo remains missing for what is now the ninth day, and as I reported on Monday, the search has now been widened to cover the whole of Tenerife. Locally, Adeje Ayuntamiento has issued a request for people not to give up hope, and to continue to search and to publicise the details concerning Carmelo and attempts to find him. If anyone can help locate him, phone 112 or the local police central number in Adeje, 922 71 65 08. Carmelo’s family has also issued 922 831 091 or 654 931 131 as contact numbers.
The council says that over 3,000 posters have been printed and distributed, that search teams have involved Adeje local police, the national police, the Guardia Civil, civil protection groups, local fire-fighter crews, and council staff and local residents. Also involved have been members of the regional government’s emergency service (GES), the Anaga emergency body (AEA), the Red Cross, and the judicial wing of the Guardia Civil who are running an official investigation into his disappearance.
Updated 14 November: Adeje Ayuntamiento says that although initially it was thought that Carmelo couldn’t have got very far, the lack of result from the intensive and extensive search effort has resulted in the search area being widened to cover the whole of Tenerife, including tracker dogs.
