Hunt for Anna and Olivia Day 15: Southeast coastline being combed inch by inch
The search for Anna and Olivia continues as dozens of Civil Protection volunteers have been combing the south-eastern coastline of Tenerife in the last few days in search of the two girls who disappeared over two weeks ago, as has their father Tomas, in a case that the courts are classing as alleged parental kidnapping.
According to the volunteer group, they are searching every ‘nook and crannie’ along the coast so as "not to leave any rock unturned," as published on social media. It is "arduous and meticulous work", which due to the characteristics of much of the southeast coast of Tenerife, must be mostly done on foot.
Also the search work by sea has not changed in recent days as far as Maritime Rescue is concerned. Their boats are tracking the coastline, from Santa Cruz, where Tomás Gimeno left inhis boat, to the area of Tajao, passing through the Puertito de Güímar, which is where his boat was found adrift the next day.
Gimeno returned to his parents house the evening he disappeared:
Police have confirmed that Tomas Gimeno returned to his parents house at some point between 7:30pm and 9:30pm on the evening that he, and his daughters, disappeared.

It has transpired that he went to their house to leave his dog there, without his parents knowing, until they found it in their garden. Investigators see this as an important piece of information, as he would only do this if he was intending to not be around for a period of time, or was going somewhere where he couldn’t take it with him.
In addition, it has also been discovered that he had a new girlfriend, who has told police that Gimeno's farewell messages to her were, "Don’t worry, I will be fine, I will be where I have always wanted to." However, the Guardia Civil has already ruled out her as an accomplice.
