Units of the Maritime Service of the Guardia Civil have recovered the lifeless body of a man from the sea, very close to the harbour in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, in the dock fishing area.

At this moment in time the corpse has not been identified, but it coincides with the disappearance of a 67 year old kitesurfer who has been missing since Saturday in El Médano, in the municipality of Granadilla, after an extensive search by the GES helicopter.

It will now be up to the Institute of Legal Medicine who are in charge of trying to identify the body, as well as the cause of death.
