Fears grow for pensioner missing in Lanzarote
Saturday 31 December 2011
The search is continuing for a British pensioner who vanished during a trip to the Canary Islands.
Fears are growing for the welfare of Margaret Holt, 65, from the Wirral, who was last seen on 23 December in the northern Orzola region of Lanzarote, wearing a pink vest, khaki shorts and walking sandals, and carrying a drawstring bag.
Her family contacted the Spanish Civil Guard to raise the alarm after she failed to make contact with them over Christmas. They are now in the country helping the search operation which has seen a dog team, rescue helicopters and volunteers join the hunt.
Djek Deign, manager of UK Away FM, an English language radio station on Lanzarote, said: "Her family found an Amazon guide to Lanzarote in her [hotel] room with marked pages, indicating that she was going hiking in the north of the island, which is where they are searching."
