Hunt for Anna and Olivia Day 12: The search continues
The search in Tenerife for Anna and Olivia, who disappeared along with their father, Tomás Gimeno, in an alleged parental kidnapping on April 27th, the date on which he should have returned his daughters to their mother, has resumed this morning for the twelfth day since they went missing.
The search team created to find them is continuing its mission over the weekend looking on land, at sea, and by air, according to sources from the Guardia Civil.
On April 27th, the father should have handed over his daughters to their mother, but instead of doing so, he called her saying that she would not see him or her daughters again, which led her to report the case to the police. From that moment on, agents have worked tirelessly to find clues leading to their whereabouts, having opened various hypotheses in their investigation.
Meanwhile, the Court of First Instance and Instruction Number 3 of Güímar (Tenerife), has initiated preliminary proceedings on the father of the minors for the alleged crime of kidnapping, and last weekend issued an international search order and arrest warrant.

Olivia and Anna's mother, Beatriz Zimmermann, has asked their father to stop what he’s doing and not make the little ones suffer. In a statement released on Friday on her social media, she thanked "the whole world" for their collaboration in finding her daughters because "there are no words to explain how a mother feels when her two reasons for being are taken away."
“This is a long-distance race and I have to be strong for them. I owe my strength to all of you, I feel like you are all with me. My little girls will be deeply grateful and it is very nice to feel such a connection between all of you for the same reason”, she said.
