A BRITISH mother was arrested in Manacor on Monday accused of abandoning her young son. Police were waiting for the 25-year-old when she returned to the Calas de Mallorca resort after a night out.
Concerned hotel staff had alerted the authorities after they heard the tourist’s seven-year-old son crying for his mother and police initially launched a search campaign before she returned from the party.
The boy was reportedly very nervous and on holiday alone with his mother, though he told staff that it wasn’t the first time he’d been left by himself.
The mother, who has not yet been named, was due in court late on Wednesday charged with neglecting a minor, while her son was taken to the island’s reception centre for abused children.
