Body found in bag 3,000ft underwater off Tenerife is ‘almost certainly’ missing girl, six

A body found in a bag 3,000 feet down on the Atlantic Ocean seabed off Tenerife is ‘almost certainly’ that of missing six-year-old girl Olivia Gimeno, Spanish authorities said.

The schoolgirl has not been seen since being snatched with her toddler sister, Anna, by her fugitive father on April 27.

Interpol issued so-called ‘yellow notices’ for the girls last month – a step to help locate missing persons, often minors, or help identify people who are unable to identify themselves.
