HUMAN remains found by a hiker in the woods on the old road between Lluc and Pollensa have been confirmed to belong to Briton Jacqueline Tennant.
Jacqueline Marie Tennant, 45, worked at a hotel in Can Picafort and disappeared in early 2007 when she had told friends she was going hiking.
According to the local press, the hiker first found a backpack, a boot with bone remains and a skull. He alerted the emergency services and the Guardia Civil collected the remains and launched an investigation. The Special Mountain Rescue Team (GREIM) had to be led by the hiker to the exact spot which was in an area which was difficult to access.
The remains were believed to belong to a woman, and been there for between eight and 10 years, and DNA tests carried out on Monday confirmed the Guardia Civil’s suspicions, as well as documents found in the backpack. There are no signs of violence and it is believed she may have fallen.
