The family of a Finnish teenager missing from Fuengirola since June has asked police in Finland to investigate the friends she was staying with.
Two days before her disappearance her family says Jenna reported her hosts to the police for having attempted to use her as a drugs mule, Spanish daily El Mundo reports
Jenna Lepomaki – who turned 19 on Wednesday (21st September) – was last seen on June 29.
According to her parents she was invited to stay with some male Finnish friends in Fuengirola, whom she met on a social networking site and paid for her trip.
Her family say they tried unsuccessfully to dissuade her from accepting the invitation.
Since her disappearance her mother discovered that the people she was staying with had criminal records and have given inconsistent stories about the last time they saw her, according to Spanish daily El Mundo quoting a report in a Costa del Sol based Finnish newspaper, Ole.
On June 29 she reportedly went to a party with friends, although these were unable to say where the party they mentioned was held or who was there.
However, the friends she was staying with claim that the last time they saw her at the party, she was crying and said she had to leave urgently because her father was ill.
Jenna’s mother suspects she may have made up this story to allow her to escape, according to the report in Ole. Since then, she hasn’t updated her Facebook profile, her phone is off and there has been no movement in her bank account.
Her disappearance is being investigated by the police both in Spain and in Finland.
