Hunt for Anna and Olivia Day 42: Objects found at sea yesterday belong to girls father
Two objects found yesterday (Monday) by the oceanographic vessel Ángeles Alvariño, which continues to track the coast of Tenerife 24 hours a day in search of clues to the whereabouts of Anna and Olivia, have been indicated as belonging to their father, Tomás Gimeno, who disappeared with them on April 27th, sources close to the investigation have reported to the Efe news agency.
Sources have confirmed that the underwater robotic submarine found a scuba diving oxygen tank and a duvet cover at a depth of 1,000 metres on the seabed, which are being sent to the Forensics Department of the Guardia Civil in Madrid for analysis.
Given these findings, the Ángeles Alvariño will continue its operations for at least the next six days until June 14th depending on how the search evolves. This ship, which has sonar and an underwater robot, works non-stop during the day and night and, since it joined the search for the girls and their father, has covered an area of 34 Km2.
The area chosen to carry out the tracking at sea was agreed upon by the Ángeles Alvariño crew and the investigators from Guardia Civil, based on the geopositioning of Tomás Gimeno’s mobile phone on the night of April 27th, when he went out to sea twice.
Both times, he set sail alone, without the company of his daughters, and was seen loading several suitcases and bags on to his boat from his car.
