The Search Continues For Missing Anna And Tomás Gimeno In Tenerife.
The Ángeles Alvariño ship continues the search for father and daughter Tomás Gimeno and Anna, however, the search area has now been widened and is much further away from the coast than before.
The high-tech, robot-equipped oceanographic vessel, has altered course to about five nautical miles from the coast, more than nine kilometres, south of where the search was carried out previously. There is still no official date for the ship’s departure, but these could be the last few days.
Investigators are now focused on locating the lead belt with which they believe that Tomás Gimeno, the father of the disappeared girls, weighed down to kill himself, according to several people involved in the case – this now appears to be a key point of the investigation.
The mother of the girls, Beatriz Zimmermann, recently wrote a thank you letter to the rescue teams and the police, saying: “It is always better to know the truth. Thanks to you I can live and little by little mired in sadness, but in peace and in the love of the knowledge that we know the truth. I wanted to go to the ship to thank you for all the work you are doing, but they told me it was dangerous so I am writing you a letter instead.
“No matter how devastating and cruel it was, it is always better to know the truth. Thanks to you (when I say you to the Guardia Civil also of course), I can feel my girls with me, in another way, but I can feel them by my side. They have done an incredible job, I know how difficult it was and they have been incredible. The doors of my house are always open to everyone. And I would be delighted to meet them,” the text read.

In a statement, the Diocese has explained that the previous investigation into the priest’s statements on the case of the girls from Tenerife and their mother has thus been closed.

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!.
Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.
