Updated 7 February 2018: Sadly, there was confirmation last night that the body of missing Granadilla man Plácido Santiago Salazar Donate has been found. There are no details, at least at this point, as to where and how he was found after all this time, but the missing person’s alert has been deactivated.
Original post 28 June 2016: Emergency services, family, friends and neighbourhood search teams have been looking for over a week for 85-year-old Plácido Santiago Salazar Donate, who has been missing without any trace since Sunday 19 June. Council sources say that the search has involved the Ayuntamiento itself, Protección Civil de Arico, San Miguel y Arona, and search and rescue helicopters, AEA, the Guardia Civil and Granadilla Policía Local. They are asking the public to get in touch with any of them if they have any news of his whereabouts. When last seen, Plácido Salazar was wearing a long-sleeved check shirt, grey trousers and a white cap.
