I am aware of this consular case, which is very distressing for the family concerned.

My Department, including our Embassy in Madrid and our Honorary Consul in Tenerife, is monitoring the case very carefully and is in regular contact with the family.

Our Honorary Consul in Tenerife engages regularly with the local police, who have confirmed that an investigation into the whereabouts of the citizen is ongoing. The Honorary Consul has also been in contact with a support organisation which works with the Red Cross in organising search activities.

I can assure you that my Department will continue to provide all possible and appropriate assistance in relation to this difficult ongoing situation.
