Search for missing canyoneer in Spain’s Mallorca extends to Menorca

THE search and rescue operation for David Cabrera, the 34-year-old man who disappeared during Storm Gloria whilst he was out canyoning, has extended to Spain’s Menorca.
As reported by the Guardia Civil, members of the rescue team are now searching the coastline of Ciutadella de Menorca.
The Special Group of Underwater Activities (GEAS) will join the extended search today (January 29) using a to scour the sea that surrounds the Serra de Tramuntana in Mallorca, continuing on to the shores of the neighbouring island of Menorca.

David Cabrera went missing on January 20 after he had been lowered with a rope by his two friends into the Torrent de Na Mora which lies between Sóller and Escorca. A powerful force of water then ran through the torrent, with David disappearing below. 

The remaining men immediately alerted the emergency services with a search and rescue operation being quickly launched due to the adverse weather conditions and the grave danger posed. This led to the Special Action Group (GEAS) and the Guardia Civil Mountain Rescue (GREIM) working alongside the Fire Brigade to search for the man, however, despite their best efforts he still has not been found.
