Family’s heartfelt message after relative found safe
The family of a Spanish woman suffering from Alzheimer’s who was found safe after disappearing for two days in Puerto de la Cruz have issued their heart-felt thanks.
An alert was issued over the 47-year-old’s safety when she wandered off from the hotel where she was staying with her husband.
She was found two days later sheltering in a cave on the beach of Los Roques in Los Realejos. She was dehyrdated and very tired and was taken to a local health centre for treatment.
She disappeared on the same day she arrived for a holiday in Puerto and a major alert was put out to find her, including through Facebook, the police, media, taxi drivers and buses. Her family said they wanted to thank all the people and organisations of Tenerife and the rest of the islands. “We will always have you in our hearts,” they said in a message to everyone involved.
