Death off San Cristobal Beach

At 09.00h this morning, Thursday the 28th, the body of an elderly woman was found off San Cristóbal in Almuñécar.

A beach goer had seen the body floating in the water and  contacted the Policía Local.

Shortly after, a Guardia Civil patrol launch retrieved the body and took it to Marina del Este for identification and a coroner’s certificate.

First reports indicate that it was a 70-year-old woman from Jaen, who regularly spends the summer in Almuñécar, in a flat on Avenida de Europa.

The cause of death is still not known.

Turns out that the woman was suffering from Alzheimer’s and had been reported missing by her husband the previous evening.
