Anna and Olivia's family asks citizens for clues

The spokesperson for the mother of the two little girls who disappeared in Tenerife since last April 27, Joaquín Amills, told this newspaper yesterday that, in his opinion, “the most probable and most well-founded hypotheses are that the girls are well and are being perfectly cared for ”.

Delving into this idea, the also president of SOS Disappeared at the state level added that “although the Civil Guard keeps all lines of investigation open, for now there is nothing that suggests something other than that the girls are well. The important thing is that the father reconsider and return to the little ones with their mother ”, referring to the also absent since then Tomás Antonio Gimeno, 37 years old and father of the minors, Anna and Olivia, one and six years old , respectively.

In addition, Joaquín Amills insisted on highlighting the importance of the citizen collaboration so that cases like the one we are dealing with come to fruition.


“The clues and / or clues that may be provided by the public and that believe they have seen Tomás Gimeno with his daughters are key to the police investigation, even if they are not sure whether it was the father or not. It must be taken into account that, if several witnesses coincide, this allows the civil guards in charge of the investigation to narrow the circle on their work map ”, explained this specialist in disappearances.

For Amills, “the reasons that can lead to disappearance are clear and the message it sends is that what matters is the girls, who have the right to enjoy their mother, their home and their father,” he explains.
“So far nothing has been broken, there is no fear of anything and everything can return to normal if the girls return to enjoy their mother.” That is the message that this mother wants to convey and that her mission is to spread.


Amills confirmed that, as unfortunately has happened in other similar cases, those on duty have already tried to profit from the misfortune of others, and that – surely due to the impossibility of contacting the mother directly – he himself was the one who received the shameless offer of a person who offered to pray for the girls with the warning that it would help find their whereabouts. Of course, after collecting about 3,000 euros, which, of course, the family spokesman rejected.
In this regard, it should be remembered that this type of conduct is punishable and is provided for in the current Penal Code.

The mother had no intention of taking her daughters away

The spokesperson for the mother of the disappeared girls wanted to clarify, on behalf of Beatriz, that under no circumstances had she considered going to live with the two little girls in another country, as it seems was speculated, surely due to the foreign nationality of the person with whom he intended to rebuild his life.

Dozens of volunteers continue to comb the coastline

Dozens of Civil Protection volunteers have been combing the southeastern coastline of Tenerife in the last days in search of Anna and Olivia, the girls who disappeared 16 days ago like their father in a case that the Investigating Court investigates as an alleged parental kidnapping .

Its work consists of thoroughly reviewing the coastline, especially the inaccessible areas, to “leave no corner behind without going,” according to the Santa Cruz de Tenerife Civil Protection volunteer group on social media.

This is “arduous and meticulous work”, which due to the characteristics of much of the southeast coast of Tenerife must be done mostly on foot.

The Tenerife Civil Protection groups emphasize that “due to time and desire to help it will not be, and, in this case, less”.

Also the search work by sea has not changed in recent days as far as the means of Maritime Rescue is concerned.

These boats track along the coastline, from Santa Cruz, where Tomás Antonio GC left alone with his boat, to the Tajao area, passing through the Puertito de Güímar, which is where the boat was found adrift. of the father.

Meanwhile, the Civil Guard maintains air, land and sea means deployed in search of the disappeared.

For today the arrival of a ship with sonar is finally expected in an effort to promote these works.
