They investigate the possible connection of a stranded sailboat in the Caribbean with the disappearance of the girls in Tenerife

When they are fulfilled more than three weeks after the disappearance of the girls in Tenerife, investigators are still looking for clues that reveal his whereabouts. The most recent is a ship that has been found aground on an island in the Caribbean Sea.

Anna and Oliva, 1 and 6 years old, the past disappeared April 27 with his father, Tomás Gimeno. That same day, the man telephoned their mother, Beatriz Zimmerman, threatening that she would never see them again, not him or the girls.

From that day on, the search operation was activated, qualifying the disappearance as critical. Gimeno was last seen at the docks of the Santa Cruz Marina, where embarked several suitcases and bags of clothes on a boat, in which he put to sea.

That boat was found the next day, abandoned and adrift in front of the Puertito de Güimar, south of Santa Cruz. One of the hypotheses handled by the Civil Guard is that Gimeno transferred to another larger ship, possibly a sailboat, to cover greater distances, abandoning the boat.

The Civil Guard agents searched this Monday for the fourth time the house of Tomás Gimeno, the father of Anna and Olivia, the girls of 1 and 6 years who disappeared almost three weeks ago in Tenerife.

Stranded sailboat

According to the Antena 3 Espejo Público program, the researchers analyze the possible route that a sailboat that has been found aground on an island in the Caribbean.

Indeed, one of the theories of the researchers is that, on board a sailboat, Gimeno could have taken the girls to some American country, a route that facilitates the marine currents that have their origin in the Canary Islands.

Boat analysis

Meanwhile, the Civil Guard meticulously analyzes the boat found in Güimar. This Wednesday they have hoisted it to the ground and have taken it in a trailer to submit it to a new review, presumably with the help of two dogs trained to find organic remains.

In it, the Civil Guard found in a first search traces of blood, which turned out to be from the father, and realized that it was not carrying an anchor.

In the place where the boat was found, empty and adrift, the rescue teams located floating in the water a child restraint chair.

The Civil Guard is awaiting judicial authorization to incorporate a sonar and an underwater robot provided by the Spanish Institute of Oceanography.
