The lifeless body of a man was recovered on Sunday, and the tragic discovery was made in the area in Almeria near where the Nijar resident disappeared on Tuesday. Last Tuesday a 23-year-old man who was a resident in Nijar disappeared from the San Miguel beach, near Cabo de Gata-Níjar.

According to Europa Press, the Guardia Civil confirmed that the Salvamento Marítimo boat ‘Salvamar Spica’ transferred the body to the port of Almeria on Sunday. The transfer was made shortly before 2 PM.

An autopsy will be carried out in order to determine the cause of death and also confirm the identity of the lifeless body.

According to reports after a visual inspection of the body which was discovered on Sunday it is believed that it belongs to the young Nijar resident, who disappeared after being on the beach with a friend last week.
